I should have been more explicit about my situation?

I cannot do downloads here -- especially not downloads of unknown size. 
In other words, in need the sort of information that one gives to a 
download/burning service that I have them get me the software on CD or 
DVD that I can then install. It really isn't practical working it any 
other way (can't ever get a net data transfer much faster than 3000 
bytes/second over just a phone line).
