[SLE] Can't Download - Xen-Live Cd-customize -Will Pay -- with apologies

I am working on a SuSE focused project.

First, I apologize if this request is out of order. I am (as some of you already know) working on a special project and I first needed help on Grub which I received from various people on this list. Thanks to all (too many to name here) who helped me in various ways. Nearly every suggestion was helpful. I post this request on [SLE] rather than [OT] because I know there is a fair amount of interest on [SLE].

In terms of that SuSE based project, I now need to download a 300Meg byte tar ball bz2 compressed file from Cambridge University and have been unsuccessful over my (slow) dial up line (server time out) even though the download utility is relentlessly persistent. I need to get this tarball!!!

I need this tar ball for my SuSE based project. I am trying to find someone (I will pay them for their effort which will involve the download of this bz2 file, checking data integrity by decompressing and untaring the tar ball without errors -- it takes about 1.8Gig of disk space -- and finally putting the compressed tarball onto two data CDs -- one purely as backup, packaging and mailing the two CDs to me). Please NOTE: Details arranged by email and not over the list.

The contents of this compressed tar ball -- once customized for my LAN -- will be used to make a LIVE Xen CD which I will then use to build vitual machines (on SuSE LINUX) which will host SuSE 9.1, 9.2, etc., as well as other distributions. This Live CD besides creating and migrating virtual Linux installations to other machines can effectively do back ups. In other words, this Live CD can be used to satisfy all my project objectives in one form or another. I have the URLs and instructions for the complete process (including customization) if anyone else is interested in doing the same thing (Josephine?). But this email is specific to down loading the tar ball for Xen Live CD contents.

Again I wish to aplogize if this request is inappropriate but I did want to share what I have been doing with the list anyway in case others were interested.

Thanks again -- TED
