Well I can't seem to download a viable firefox tarball... I've just
downloaded to 3 different machines (one vista, one xp, and my centos server)
-- all file sizes are different and bzip complains about a corrupt archive.
I don't see any mirror sites listed on mozilla.com either... /sigh The file
is supposed to be 8.6mb... The largest of my downloads so far was 6.4mb and
it wouldn't extract. So mozilla.com is having some problems... If anyone
knows of a mirror or doesn't mind emailing me the 3.0.8 32-bit tarball I'd
appreciate it. I was really hoping to get my php/oracle dev environment up
today but doesn't look good.

Thanks for any help,
-CC
