Yes, I used wget which does that. but my problem is that all ( I Guess) the mirrors  deleted Beta 1.5 in favor of the beta 2. Now there's no place to continue from, THat I know of. SO the 2 questions
1. where can I still find the Beta 1.5 stuff     and
2. Can i even use the 1.5 USB .img as a live file system "demo"

I had to find a wget.exe and an MD5.exe to use in vista since there is no way i know of to use the USB Modem from Smart ( a ZTE??) from FreeBSD. and besides, not all my stuff has arrived here in thePI yet. still waiting.

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.
