Thanks for the ideas.
I don't know for sure, but I tried at least from 10 different download
servers, and from 3 different locations and it did not work.

I will regrettably be switching to suse, I heard they have no problems
installing via ftp or http given you have enough memory.

I regret to agree with so many other postings. I am deeply dissaponted how
things went since RHL became Fedora. This was the last for me!
