    Downloading Red Hat 8

    Hi guys

    Im having a bit of trouble downloading this from ftp.redhat.com here at work.

    When i try to access the ftp site it just times out, even though i have followed the instructions of logging in as anonymous and email as password.

    I have also tried a few different mirror sites which are giving me the same s**t.

    Im thinking maybe this has something to do with the firewall at work.

    Anyone know why this could be happening or know of an alternative download location, as i just got myself another pc last night which im devoting to this OS.

    Again thanx in advance guys!

    could be that your firewall ristricts access to ftp sites.....
    try downloading from some http sites!
    buying M$ OS is like ordering a soup where u gotta pay extra for the bowl and spoon....and each time u order something new u gotta pay a huge amount for a new table!!!
