Thank you very much for your suggestions. I succeeded in IE7, by not entering anything in the box. I entered:
ftp://ftp-archive.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD-Archive/old-releases/ Then, I clicked my way to the ISO-IMAGES directory. On the way it asked me again with a login box. I tried with checking the box, but it did not work. So I changed Anonymous to anonymous. I tried with the Microsoft-password [EMAIL PROTECTED], and it worked. However, on a repeated try, anonymous with my own [EMAIL PROTECTED] as password would not work. Firefox, however, would fail, no matter what I do. Right now I am downloading disk1-kde. I don't know if it is important, but I am using the net from my dorm, and there everything goes through some central machine. Is this relevant? Till now, all was just fine... -----Ursprüngliche Nachricht----- Von: Jerry McAllister [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] Gesendet: Freitag, 16.
