Another way to state this : the Windows FAT-32 file system uses a
32-bit integer to describe file size. The biggest file possible in a FAT-32
system is about 4GB. The same is true for early versions of NTFS.

>So, can't I download and burn images when i'm working on Win2k with Opera 7.54 ??

If the images exceed 4GB, you can't.

No, it seems not. I don't use Windows myself, so I don't know of any
software to recommend for the download. Hopefully somebody on the
debian-cd list (see CC:) will be able to help...

You could do this several ways. You could buy the DVDs, you could
change to CDs, you could upgrade to Sarge, you could prevail upon
a friend, you could get the pieces and rely on your DVD-burning software
to assemble a DVD, etc. etc. etc.
