Do you have JavaScript disabled?  There's a bit of scripting on that
page, and I noticed with another browser and FC7 (I'm trying out Opera),
that without JavaScript enabled nothing happens, but with it I get sent
to a second page and a download starts.

The current version of Google Earth works fine for me, too.  Just
thought I'd throw that in, in case it's helpful for the next stage of
your quest.
