    Best Download Manager?


    Hello there! Currently I'm willing to install mandriva linux but whenever I compare the md5 results I get frustrated. It's the third time it happens. I'm a little bit cheapskate now and I won't buy a Linux inst. CD. Do u guys know a good download manager to use so that the download is sucessful? What download manager do u use? Already tried leechget, flashget and getright but all failed.

    you could be downloading a bad mirror. happens to me all the time
    Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
    Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
    Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?
