    Nope, no download caps that I know of. Especially since I have downloaded iso's of 600MB+ on my Mac and when I used to have Winblows.

    It didn't resume it, just restarted it. We'll see what it gets to this time. I found a download manager that comes with KNOPPIX called Kget, that froze up at 2%..

    You have to start wget -c from the same directory where the original (partial) file is located. If wget cannot find the original chunk, it does not resume, but starts downloading from the beginning.

    Doing that from the directory where it was being downloaded to, I get this:
    Code:
    wget -c http://server1.download.filefront.com/ujeduwipjv+/pub2/Return_to_Castle_Wolfenstein_Enemy_Territory/Official_Demos/Linux/et-linux-2.55.x86.run
    --07:03:15--  http://server1.download.filefront.com/ujeduwipjv+/pub2/Return_to_Castle_Wolfenstein_Enemy_Territory/Official_Demos/Linux/et-linux-2.55.x86.run
               => `et-linux-2.55.x86.run'

    Do you get a download when starting fresh using wget minus the -c on any of the mirrors? If so, let i download until it halts. Then use the same command but include the -c. Do you have plenty of room on your hardrive for the download? After all, it is fairly large...

    I have tons of room, when I let it download until it stops and then use that command I get the same results. It's what I've been doing all along.
