I also had no luck two weeks ago with the single file download.
The web install worked ok, however. It downloads many smaller
files. I think my very slow DSL connection is to blame here.  :-(

Two years ago, when I still lived in Berlin, Xilinx used to have one of the
few servers that were capable to max out my (then) 16 MBit/s link.

@ Ulrich:
Did you see a show stopper with the Xilinx Coolrunners?
I have used them before and liked them. Really fast and they
consume close to no power. I'd like to deploy them for something
jitter-critical very soon.
