Well, there are no problems on my end as far as I can tell. It also
sounds to me like you downloaded the full iso, but I'd run an MD5sum
check before I believed that. Yes, the files are still available for
download, since I have seen a few more downloads going on after I
posted saying that I'll remove them. So, I'll keep them up for a bit
more, as long as I see they're still being downloaded.
