hard to say what happened when you downloaded,  what program did you use 
to download it it?    `wget` has a habit of creating a .1 file if its 
told to download a file that already exists in the same directory.  
obviously, that first file you list above is way too short.   Its 
possible that 2nd file is the whole .iso, did you run a md5sum against it ?

Most of the mirrors do NOT have the DVD .iso file as its just too 
big.      I'd suggest using a torrent program such as rtorrent or 
ctorrent or whatever, with the .torrent file that should have been in 
the same directory as that .ISO
