Linux kernel >= 2.4.0 support large files but some applications in Woody 
such as dd, wget do not!

I upgraded to Sid.

This seems to be wrong. Jigdo-lite uses wget to download files and these 
files are generally small. I don't know what program is used to create 
the large image file and indeed it's possible that this fails in Woody, 
but I'm not sure.

Using Attila's jigdo files I'm downloading all missing files, and there's 
no need to download the first 2GB again!

PS: The first dvd jigdo file contains a wrong URL (zless sid-i386-1.jigdo)
Please note that "sid-dvd" should be used instead of "sid".

ShortInfo='Debian GNU/Linux N/A "Sid" - fsn.hu unofficial i386 Binary-1 

What does N/A stand for?
