Sorry to hear that, Peter. I don't know what to tell you to do. I've
sent the contact email for snowlinux an advisory that they are being
blocked by some DNS services as a phishing site.

Direct d/l links for the 32 bit and 74 bit disks are after the specs.
maybe those will work for you. If they don't I'd be willing to put the
64 bit disk image onto my dropbox for one week.
