me also. Less thatn 15 minutes here.
I downloaded the whole thing and burned a DVD.
Thanx to the folks
who advised me to get the 64-bit version. I'll install it later tonite, if
I don't run into any further trouble. When it's installed and running
I'll post back, and if it doesn't install and run, I'll also post back!
BTW: I did not see any checksum information on the download site.
I just took it on faith that it was OK. Up until now, I've always had
good downloads, when I did have a checksum to verify with.
Re: torrent. I've had mixed results. Some things download fairly
quickly, but on at least one thing i wanted to download, I got an
expected time of 30 days! I know I've been told that torrent is
safe, but it makes me nervous to have someone else connected
to my machine. So I have used it, but I still get nervous!
