This is one reason I suggest using wget with the -c flag. Assuming that the file is still intact you could try:
cd /to/location/of/file.iso
wget -c ftp://ftp.site.com/file.iso

You may want to backup what you have got just in case it doesn't work

yes - if you have the original md5 sum that the author produced you can generate one and compare them.

Usually the author creates a file with the same name but ending in ".md5" I usually download that and compare them with a one line command like:
md5sum file.iso;cat file.iso.md5

This then gives you an out put of something like:
5a3192d71cd9bba9f2de68fae2182e17 file.iso
5a3192d71cd9bba9f2de68fae2182e17 file.iso
