 This would more seem like a local error then an FreeBSD error. We have
 many downloads but not these complaints.
 However: You mention ftp2.freebsd.org, did you try ftp.freebsd.org?
 or ftp.yourcountrycode.freebsd.org ? Perhaps they work better and
 allow you to download the entire iso file.
 You can find a list of FTP servers here:
