Welcome hodgy,This forum did the same thing to me. Mandrake made a big jump from 8.x to 9.1It would be worth your time if you have broadband to get the free 9.1 distro.

I almost joined the Linux world today.  Got Knoppix 95% downloaded before my fast connection quit on me.  This has become a challenge for me now.  I'll keep trying!  :o

Sieb... I'd recommend download a program such as GetRight.  It'll help you: 1. Find multiple mirrors to help speedup download2. Pause/Stop/Resume downloads (even if your connection dies)I've had good luck using it to download distros...  just run a checksum when you're done... I've only had one disc  (out of about 25 different downloads) that I had to redo.  Not to shabby huh?

I've tried a couple of different downloaders.   I tried Download Accelerator Plus (didn't like DAP much) & Leechget.  Leechget said that the Knoppix sites didn't support restarts.  Actually, if I remember correctly, Leechget wouldn't even start the download.  :o
