Finally got it through Transmission... It wasn't taking advantage of all my available bandwidth, but whatever, I got it downloaded in about 9 hours.
Anyway... My experience has sucked thus far. I will give it some leniency, though, since I am using it in VirtualBox after all.
Upon installation and reboot, I received 3 kernel panics in a row. I kept resetting, and finally I got into the OS. For some reason, the resolution was something like 1920x1200, so I had to scroll across the screen... This is the fault of VB, though. Then I went to install the Guest Additions for VB/Linux integration, and that failed, so I deleted Fedora 9 lol
It looked very good and polished off from what I saw, though. I'm 100% sure that my problems were caused by VB. I don't know what the deal with the download was, though.
I'll have to give this another try on a native install. I'm actually really looking forward to it; it looked great. Fedora Core 6 is where Fedora started to get really good, and 7 got much better. Then 8 came along and looked damn professional (except for my constant "package manager in use" problem...), and now we have 9 which looks like a complete OS. I'm expecting this to be good... I will report back with results!
