Trying again. Need help:
Specifically somewhere to FINISH downloading 
May sound silly since Beta2 is now out But I'm really in the boondocks 
in Samar Philippines. Downloading is really bad here and rather 
expensive. Daytime bandwidth slows to about dialup or less. mostly less, 
and my Broadband source is engaging in Throttling or Capping.
I got capped at 534MB after 5 days of waiting patiently and using a 
wget.exe to get that far. They Capped me at 534MB of the approx 640MB. 
By a day and a half later, beta 2 was out and none of the mirrors had 
what I needed any more. It just wouldn't pay to start all over again.
To be real truthful, I'm not sure what is in the LITE USB image, whether 
it will work in Live "Try it, you'll Like it" mode or not. someone might 
comment on that. I looked for a description of the different types and 
didnt find it where one might expect to in mirrors.isc.org. Please 
forgive my ignorance.
 So can someone tell me where I might be able to finish my download or 
whether I would even want it?

Failure is Not an option. It comes bundeled with your Microsoft product.
If at first you dont succeed, try to hide your astonishment.
    and hide any evidence you tried.
