Java problem of download solaris

hi,
I want to install solaris 8 for sparc,you can get it on the website
http://www.sun.com,there are three files need to download,
one install file,two soft files,I use FLASHGET to download them,
then use WINZIP 8.0 to unzip them, the two soft files can
be unzipped successfully,but the install file was bad and cannt
be unzipped.I have see the FAQS on the http://www.sun.com,
but it says there are so many people download this soft everyday,
it must be my OS problem ,I have downloaded the install soft twice,I am tired,who can help?thank you.

I would agree with Sun. It is something on your side... Try another download manager, and make sure you have enough space on your hard drive. Even getting the last few bytes chopped off of the end of the file can ruin the archive. On a Windows PC, you may even need twice the size of the download file to get it, since it is stored in a TEMP directory, then copied to it's destination when complete, then the TEMP file is deleted.
