    ...you're downloading a CD image (don't worry, it's Linux so it's legal), which takes 90 minutes to download, and the download stalls at 4 minutes remaining, and it can't be resumed?

    IE doesn't even support resume! That's the LAST time I'm EVER gonna use IE for FTPing !! :mad:

    SmartFTP is the shiznit if you want an FTP client.

    I also like Getright because it will automatically redial your connection if it gets cut-off and hang-up when it's done. It also automatically searches for alternate mirrors and segments files for a quicker download.

    Using IE for downloading anything is questionable at best (says the man who does it daily). For anything that may take a while and you don't want to curse and start over, you need a "download manager"....

    ... a "download manager"... wtf, M$? :mad:
