Downloading a 20MB file at 14.4 modem speeds should take 3 hours.  Not
really that long, and you could always download for an hour each night,
and resume where you left off the next day.

If you can't download a 20MB file, how on earth are you keeping up with
the security patches released by Microsoft? :)
