I am very happy for you. It has happened to other people and there are
ways around it.

Using FTP with ASCII protocol will be sufficient. Also a noisy and
pretty frequently dropping DSL line will cause issues, especially when
the file is resumed. Bad disc sectors can't help either and none of
these have anything to do with Linux or Windows. Firefox on Ubuntu
9.10 had corrupted a 600MB download I've done from IBM a couple of
days ago and it was completely my fault because I insisted on using my
frequently-dropping Blackberry's 3G connection instead of waiting for
the next day and using a more reliable network.

Thanks for the good advice. I shall always remember to put my ISO file
onto a cd-rom properly from now on.
