Default Re: Downloads stall out

Running Mandriva 2005, downloaded and installed various pkg.run files before, and cannot get the download to complete. Tried about a month ago to see if 7174 would solve the lockups in my install of 2006 but download would not complete: stops at about 1% after less than 10 seconds. At the time, I thought it might have something to do with there being no "Accept" button on the license agreement plan, only a "Back" button. Finally, I gave up. Just now, I am trying again in Mozilla, Konqueror, in case it is a browser problem, and with wget on the command line. Ooh, goody, after about 10 minutes, I'm up to 2% in another seconds-long burst on this 2M/sec dsl connection:

Unfortunately, I have paid good money for my nvidia card and don't find this quite as amusing as some a**holes apparently do.
