Jayne -

I'm not having the same problem.  It's letting me download the files from
this page:


Is that where you're downloading them from?

I've never seen another place to get oracle downloads.  i don't think they
allow that - their clicky license thingy says you will not redistribute,
etc, etc, etc.  You used to be able to get CDs cheap from oracle, but i
don't know if they're still doing that.

What browser are you using?  I've got galeon here, v1.0.3, with mozilla
v0.9.8. (mandrake 8.2)
