nope, it doesn't download till 50MB. Since the file is more than 50MB,
it terminates the download at the very beginning. If the file is less
than 50MB only, it gets downloaded.

Thanks. But this even won't help at the moment, since it exceeds 50MB.
I would upgrade to yum but it also doesn't work. This goes through a
proxy. And I wish to have a fresh install of F16. So downloading the
iso seems the only option.
