#2 Installer trouble

I'm having a hell of a time getting this installer to work properly. First, I downloaded the file via and FTP program. When I tried to run the installer (win32), it began unpacking files, then complained that some zip file (all I remember is it had 'gre' in the name, or something like that) was corrupted and I'd need to re-download the installer. Next, I downloaded the installer via Mozilla Firebird. The files unpacked ok, but as the install got underway, it complained that it couldn't fine some exe file in the temp directory (it was basicly the same filename as before, just with a different extension; if I remember correctly). The hard part is that now that people know it's out, it's taking forever to connect to the server and re-download the file.
