I also would recommend the net-install CD- it's a quicker
shorter download (150M) than the full CD (600M) images so 
it should be easier for you to get a full image before your 
intermittent network connection breaks.  And the net-install 
process also resumes on disconnect fairly well.

Or you could even try the bizcard image- it's only 50MB.

Regardless- you don't need to download more than one CD
image- after packages selected (like KDE) will be happily 
download from the net.

If you are having trouble getting a full image you might
want to try wget -c: it can resume a failed download.
