Err...  I don't think so.  If I open the directory in my browser, it
says:

FC2-test3-i386-DVD.iso Apr 21 2004 4G

So there's something wrong with the http client you're using for the
download.



as i (vaguely) recall from this discussion before, it's a problem with some of the clients that don't understand >32-bit sizes. a number of people complained about this weirdly small size before.

At this point I would concur with this answer. (I made the original post in the thread). The http client is bad. ( I was using Windows IE because that's where I have a DVD burner). However, when I do a "vanilla" ftp transfer, it looks like the size is going to be correct. (Cross my fingers). It has already downloaded 150+ meg. So, I still have a ways to go, but before the http download with IE stopped at 80 meg.

Thanks...Terry
