Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately, while it may be very fast
from your side of the world, it is painfully slow from the west coast
of the United States.

The rate I was getting was about 4K/s. Yes, I could wait a couple days
for it to finish. What I want is a TORRENT. I keep saying that in this

been able to tell me where to find one. The idea of a torrent is that
it saves the sender (Debian) bandwidth.
