Lynx uses /tmp to store files, then copies them to your current directory. 
Wget, on the other hand, downloads files to the current directory without 
using /tmp.  If you have /tmp mounted as tmpfs, that could be your 
problem.  Alternatively, if /tmp is part of your root file system, it may 
not have the space for a DVD image.  If it was me, I'd definitely use Wget 
to download something that big.
