Has anyones out there met this problem before, I cannot download FreeBSD 5.3 iso images off their download mirrors. The download always broken somewhere around 50-70% of the file and cannot be resume in any way.
I've tried with their FreeBS Centre mirror, Japan, Germany, Hong Kong ... mirrors, with or without download manager programs (Filezilla, Flashget...) but the results are the same - a broken download :-(
Could anyones can help me to solve this, I acctually need FreeBSD but cannot buy it herein Vietnam.

QUOTE (abhiram)How do you do that? I might try it out if it doesn't take so long to install.
Well what you could do is simply boot in your linux .. and dowload the stage you want to download. If you want a fully customized system then you download Stage 1 ..but it takes alot more time. Download Stage 2 or Stage 3 to get things up and running in lesser time . You can always recompile every thing once your working desktop (for me it would be Working X and Mozilla + mplayer) installed.
Then after you download the stage use the guide to compile it. Once you chroot into tyhe stage you will be inside the gentoo system ..its all in the Gentoo HandBook. It would take some time . May be a day or 2 to compile alot of stuff. If you have a slow internet connection i would recomend not to do so. Other wise you can always sacrifice a day or two for this experimentation. Believe me when i say it ...if you get this installed...you will never use any thing else ..for a very long time ()€may be when u get really old and think that computer is very fast for you ..ull switch back to Windows ..)
PM me if you have any more questions
