First of all. It's greate that Linux Pakistan is interested  
http://www.linuxpakistan.net/ :-). You are motivating us to do a better 
job with your question! I took the liberty to send my answer to the 
debian-edu mailinglist so that more people around the would can get the 
same answer, where probably more people have low bandwidth, as you 
have ... 

Answer 1: wget supports http, https, and ftp protocols. It's posible to 
use 'wget' with the parameter '-c': 

'wget -c 

You can regulate the numbers of retries with the parameter '-t': 

'wget -c -t 20 <ftp-file>'

The parameter '--waitretry=seconds' should do the job?

Try 'man wget' to find more parameters :-)

Answer 2: Jim Oksvold is also sending ISO-images to any country or place 
for the price of the CD, and postage :-)
