Looks like I'm just full of questions today.

I started downloading a Redhat 9 .iso, but I'm not sure if it makes a difference which .iso I download there are 3 for each version, but two versions. What's the difference? To understand what I mean click Here (http://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/9/en/iso/i386/)

There's 1-3 of "shrike-SRPMS-disc1.iso"

And 1-3 of "shrike-i386-disc1.iso"

SRPMS is the CD full of source RPMs, in other words the source code for everything on the other CDs. You probably won't be wanting that.

Damn fucking shit. It was at 100% and for some reason Mozilla crashed, for the first time ever. I lost the download I think, and now I can't connect because there are too many users! BAH.

That should teach you to use download managers.

Try connecting here(where I got my files from): ftp://ftp.otenet.gr/pub/linux/redhat/linux/9/en/iso/i386/

Thanks, I'm now downloading 2 and 3 simultaneously at fast speeds also.

Disk 2 From Redhat.com: Constant at 130 kb/s
Disk 3 From Suggested FTP: Constant at 70 kb/s

Wait, since it's from a greek site will disk information be in greek as well?

The url contains the en parameter, the iso's are english...

I had a constant 45kb/sec download speed over broadband.

That's not a parameter. They should teach you what parameters are.
