I don't know if everyone saw the message on the Fedora list about the
torrent:

http://www.torrentspy.com/download.asp?id=326159

I am downloading at about 170 KB/s right now, and the files to be
downloaded are:

FC4-i386-disc1.iso  
FC4-i386-disc2.iso
FC4-i386-disc3.iso  
FC4-i386-disc4.iso
SHA1SUM

I'll let everyone know how it looks when I get done.
