Ok. I tried rsyncing for the second time from ftp.se.d.o .
After apr. 10 hours it finished with >600 Mb data read ( .3 $ per Mb )
It said that 23 Mb data was matched.
MD5 sum didn't match.
( 13d1c3648285fc4119c497aff3c0e205 binary-i386-1_NONUS.iso )
( Might it be that this is md5 sum if no -b key is used ? )

Rsyncing again (blocksize=65536).
It froze after 3 hours on 98% after transferring another 300+ Mb.
(It's not killed yet)
That's it. I'll better find someone to ftp it to Latvia so I can grab it
on free, national traffic.
Is there a way I can get rsync temp file and what is in the file-to-rsync.
BTW It is a Win2000 Professional
