Thanks,

Matt

oh i'm sure there will be plenty of torrents hosting it. i'm not sure on the laws of beta software, as it's not being sold or anything...

Yeah true, but im getting amazing speeds lmao

im on a DSL 1.5mb connection which usually tops out at about 160kb/s but this download for some particular reason is averaging 175kb/s lmao.....although the other person on my network is having a hissy fit cause its slowing down their browsing :) hehe

are you on a 1.5mb connection?.......btw im in Australia, where the broadband is...well pretty much the worst, very rare to find an unlimited connection, im on a connection that allows you to download 25gb a month, and anything after that is on dialup speed...

just tried installing it - didn't work. first i found the installer doesn't work with multiple hard drives... it just comes up with an error. when i unplug one of my hard drives, i can type in the code... i choose the options to install... gets to 2% and then it tells me there is an error. It has now completely ruined my Grub boot manager... which is hell to reinstall.

maybe i burnt the dvd wrong? i can't run the setup from inside windows... i chose the 64-bit vista beta for my athlon 64 and i only have xp home (32-bit). grr...

I max at about 50kb/s

Dont worry about the "no more accepting downloads" - isohunt.com! I think it's legal, because it's not being sold.
