Hard to tell - for me, it works on our machine:

~/stage/Downloads/MySQL-5.0> tar ztvf mysql-5.0.4-beta.tar.gz | head
drwxrwxrwx 503/100           0 2005-04-16 21:10:24 mysql-5.0.4-beta/
drwxrwxrwx 503/100           0 2005-04-16 21:10:06 mysql-5.0.4-beta/bdb/
-rw-r--r-- 503/100        1998 2005-04-16 21:01:45 mysql-5.0.4-beta/bdb/Makefile.in
...

and it works on my private PC with a package downloaded from Sunsite Europe:
http://dev.mysql.com/get/Downloads/MySQL-5.0/mysql-5.0.4-beta.tar.gz/from/http://sunsite.informatik.rwth-aachen.de/mysql/

joerg@trift2:~> tar tzvf /opt/Downloads/mysql-5.0.4-beta.tar.gz | head
drwxrwxrwx 503/100           0 2005-04-16 21:10:24 mysql-5.0.4-beta/
drwxrwxrwx 503/100           0 2005-04-16 21:10:06 mysql-5.0.4-beta/bdb/
-rw-r--r-- 503/100        1998 2005-04-16 21:01:45 mysql-5.0.4-beta/bdb/Makefile.in
...


Are you sure it did not get damaged during transfer, or by your browser?
All I can recommend is to try another mirror.
