To answer your original question about using your fedorapeople account, I don't
see why not. The default quota on the account is about 2 GB though, but there's
probably some command-line trickery you could use to download smaller pieces of
the ISO into your fedorapeople account before downloading it from there, or you
could ask to get the quota raised. You don't have to make the pieces publicly
visible to download them, either - you can use scp or sftp. Which raises another
question - is your 50 MB limit limited to http downloads, or can you download
bigger pieces using scp or other tools?
