    Downloading iso's in binary vs. ASCII

    I looked at documents about downloading Mandrake 9.0 iso's, and saw that Netscape downloads automaticaly in ASCII mode, and that it corrupts the iso image.

    How do i set Netscape to download in binary, or should i just try to download it with internet explorer?

    It would be nice if all of these people put everything in zip. rar files also have this problem.

    Try right-clicking on the iso file and save taget as or whatever netscape has to download the file instead of left-clicking on it to download it. Otherwise use IE to download it.
