A while back I was downloading the EVAL DVD ISO. The size and date
changed twice on the ftp.suse.com site. It was different on different US
mirrors at the same time. Could it be the iso has been getting changed
by whomever uploads to the mirrors. The LIVE iso also was broken on 2 of
three downloads. I believe that someone was making mischief or fixing
bugs or something.
