I just did a normal download using wget and downloaded it just fine. 
Here is the shell script I used:

mount -v /distrostemp
#wget -c -nv -P /distrostemp/ ${host}CentOS-5.5-i386-LiveCD.iso
#wget -c -nv -P /distrostemp/ ${host}CentOS-5.5-i386-bin-1of7.iso
#wget -c -nv -P /distrostemp/ ${host}CentOS-5.5-i386-bin-2of7.iso
#wget -c -nv -P /distrostemp/ ${host}CentOS-5.5-i386-bin-3of7.iso
#wget -c -nv -P /distrostemp/ ${host}CentOS-5.5-i386-bin-4of7.iso
#wget -c -nv -P /distrostemp/ ${host}CentOS-5.5-i386-bin-5of7.iso
#wget -c -nv -P /distrostemp/ ${host}CentOS-5.5-i386-bin-6of7.iso
#wget -c -nv -P /distrostemp/ ${host}CentOS-5.5-i386-bin-7of7.iso
wget -c -nv -P /distrostemp/ ${host}CentOS-5.5-i386-bin-DVD.iso
wget -c -nv -P /distrostemp/ ${host}CentOS-5.5-i386-netinstall.iso
wget -c -nv -P /distrostemp/ ${host}md5sum.txt
wget -c -nv -P /distrostemp/ ${host}md5sum.txt.asc
wget -c -nv -P /distrostemp/ ${host}sha1sum.txt
wget -c -nv -P /distrostemp/ ${host}sha1sum.txt.asc
umount -v /distrostemp


mount -v /distrostemp
#wget -c -nv -P /distrostemp/ ${host}CentOS-5.5-x86_64-LiveCD.iso
#wget -c -nv -P /distrostemp/ ${host}CentOS-5.5-x86_64-bin-1of8.iso
#wget -c -nv -P /distrostemp/ ${host}CentOS-5.5-x86_64-bin-2of8.iso
#wget -c -nv -P /distrostemp/ ${host}CentOS-5.5-x86_64-bin-3of8.iso
#wget -c -nv -P /distrostemp/ ${host}CentOS-5.5-x86_64-bin-4of8.iso
#wget -c -nv -P /distrostemp/ ${host}CentOS-5.5-x86_64-bin-5of8.iso

#wget -c -nv -P /distrostemp/ ${host}CentOS-5.5-x86_64-bin-7of8.iso
#wget -c -nv -P /distrostemp/ ${host}CentOS-5.5-x86_64-bin-8of8.iso
#wget -c -nv -P /distrostemp/ ${host}CentOS-5.5-x86_64-bin-DVD-1of2.iso
wget -c -nv -P /distrostemp/ ${host}CentOS-5.5-x86_64-bin-DVD-2of2.iso
wget -c -nv -P /distrostemp/ ${host}CentOS-5.5-x86_64-netinstall.iso
wget -c -nv -P /distrostemp/ ${host}md5sum.txt
wget -c -nv -P /distrostemp/ ${host}md5sum.txt.asc
wget -c -nv -P /distrostemp/ ${host}sha1sum.txt
wget -c -nv -P /distrostemp/ ${host}sha1sum.txt.asc
umount -v /distrostemp

I ran it overnight (I did the 32-bit ISOs as three successive nights and
the 64-bit ISOs over 4 nights).  I did this on the local library's 'high
speed' (900mhz wireless) link (about 1-2 mbits/sec).
