all though in the mozilla download manager shows the
iso file name correctly the error message comes up
around 40-50% of the file about 300MB. which makes
sence since my tmp partition is only 300MB.
I dont see why that exe file would be going to my tmp
i'm using mozilla 1.5. maybe thats just the way the
mozilla download manager works. its odd that it would
use a temp file name with exe extension as a temp
I will do wget and hope for the best.
