I found what was causing the big problem (and still some mystery).
I downloaded the boot.img using ncftp compiled to run on Win32 with the
Cygnus (cygwin) tool kit beta 20.1. The program seems to work great,
but for some reason (cashing??) it corrupts the image. I used another
ftp client in Windows and the image is fine.

Now your probably thinking "Why is he using Windows??"

For some reason when I try to download in Linux, I get part of the file
and the server stalls and will not send the rest of the requested file
(or even resume if using ftp). This is not application specific, it
happens no matter what application I use (ftp, wget, wxftp, ncftp, gftp
and even netscape). This is what happens on the belegost server. It
dose seem to be server specific though, on some ftp sites I have no such
problem. I've tried logged in as root with no improvement. I have
resorted to using Windows in these occasions because I can download
the same file and it never stops or stalls once using any application.
This problem is very frustrating to me, I have tried various options
and settings.

Any ideas??

Jean, I'm sorry you uploaded another boot.img on my account. Please
accept my apology.
