For FC3 there is an "iso" file for burning an install DVD, which is very
convenient.  However the file is about 2.4GB and I discovered that wget and
curl both crap out at 2GB.  Plain old vanilla FTP works fine.  

(I felt like Chico Marx in "A Night at the Opera" describing failed
attempts to fly to America from Europe. "... This time we're just about to
land - maybe three feet - when whaddya think? We run out-a gasoline again
and back we go again to get more gas.")
