How did you download them? Bit torrent? Why is this worth a thread?

Because ti doesnt seem right. It was just a http download. I downloaded them all at once and it didnt take much more than 20 minutes.

How big is it? How much bandwidth do you have? Do some math.

Ok lets see here I am at 2.4 megabits per second. That is 3.5 seconds for every MB.

CD 1- 617 MB
CD 2- 638 MB
CD 3- 677 MB
CD 4- 386 MB ~ but didnt finish

See i had just started the CD 4 download at my last post, and it is only at 25%.

This dosent seem logical at all.

Note that i download the first 3 disks all at the same time.

STRANGE

Exactly, 3 large files at a time taking less time than 1 smaller file. Do you think my larger cd 1,2, and 3 iso's are whole?

They have verifiers you can use to check just that. In fact it's recommended you use them before begining an install.

I thought you weren't a linux noob...

2 methods, using the "linux mediacheck" command or just follow the prompts as they come when you start installing.

Actually most cable connections are better than T1's for download. A T1 lines real power is in its upload.

Yup
1.5Mbs up and down is T1, since Cable can download at speeds of 3-5Mbs it rocks for dl stuff... but with a 128-256Kbs upload - its not a real good choice for FTP/Web, etc.. :(
