Huh?  This is the second person I've heard claim that IE can't download 
files over 2GB, but I have successfully done it.  Maybe it's an older 
version that can't?  I used IE 7 and it didn't have any trouble.  Still, 
ncftp can do downloads in the background, so it may still be handy.  also, 
how could an ISO be 150GB?  A DVD can only hold somewhere around 4GB.
