Unhappy download problem with linux NVIDIA driver packages

I have been attempting to download the 'NVIDIA Accelerated Linux Driver Set' from the ftp sites.
I have attempted to download the 'kernel' and GLX packes as both, rpm and tar files.

In all cases I have been getting download Warnings!
Because I prefer the tar file method, I will use those download errors as examples.

i.e. The following text is displayed after the tar file package download is completed:

For kernel package download:

WARNING! 1484 bare line feeds received in ASCII MODE
files may not be transferred correctly

For GLX package download:

WARNING! 5916 bare line feeds received in ASCII MODE
files may not be transferred correctly

Although these file downloads complete successfully on to my drive, they will not install on my OS (redhat 7.1)

When I try to install these packages, the following text errors are displayed:


For kernel package installation

tar: Skipping to next header
gzip: stdin: invalid compressed data -- crc error
gzip: stdin: invalid compressed data -- length error
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

For kernel package installation

gzip: stdin: invalid compressed data -- format violated
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

I believe that the installation problems are probably directly related to the transfer errors
from the ftp downloads (but I could be wrong).

Please let me know how I can resolve this download problem.

Thanks
