Not sure, but it had no problems using wget to download the file. I set the retries to infinite but it never had to retry. I installed it on my P4 3.0Ghz 1.5GB ram machine at home. With a GeForce4 FX5200 video card (128MB) I scored a 2 on the perf meter. So far it runs ok but I get long pauses during some operations like changing the screen res or switching users. The UAC box also causes my monitor to go into suspend for about a second every time it pops up.
