Must be a new problem, I have been downloading stuff for weeks without a
problem from machines here at netserv.com

...just tried from another domain, and it failed too (hal.com,
fsc.fujitsu.com).

Either the internic service is hosed, or they changed the format of the
message you are expecting.

Thanks, Scott
