File not found. I finally managed to start downloading them last night.
There were a couple of problems:

1) Me! Since I already have the Redhat rpms I just wanted the
differentials. However when I went to ./distribution/ the differential
directory was not there, so I assumed ./distribution/NoCD was the one I
wanted. I was able to download all of the rpms in that directory, except
for gnome* (file not found). Last night after re-reading Jean's message a
few times I noticed differentials were higher in the directory tree (RTFS :-)

2) Download Client: My primary OS is still Win32 (NT at work & 95 at home).
My Win32 ftp client is CuteFTP, and it was trying to CWD to the symbolic
file links. :) "Get link as file" cured this (except that I had to get each
file one at a time :(. GetRight cured this problem (hope there's similar
program for linux!))

3) The symbolic links in ./NoCD for gnome* -are- broken.
