		The registration is a PITA, and they provide no help when an
internet connection goes bad, you have to start the download all over
again.  They don't allow ftp access which would have allowed me to
"resume" the download.  The only other option was special plugins for
IE/Netscape browsers, but only Windoze versions.  I had to download
the thing using the multiple files:  10 megabytes at a time.
	And I don't even want to know what kind of internet connection you
have that allows a 100 megabyte download in 10 minutes.  :-)
