I'm downloading it now, I figured I've give it a go on a couple of older 
machines here (well one is an Athlon X2 4400+ with 2GB Ram which is 
going in for repair with HP on Friday to have a new motherboard).  
Getting pretty lousy download speeds, but hey I can leave it going over 
night if need be.
