    I'm trying to download a 4,280MB file (SuSE DVD ISO), but most download programs (I've tried wget and Firefox's built in one) seem to get confused about half way through the download, and begin counting into negative percentages (and file sizes). Does anyone know of a program that is capable of downloading such a large file without experiencing problems?

    Thanks!

    It's problem with 32-bit ints. Just download the file and it should work.
