Linux, WinNT PR3.
Tried to download xemacs rpm file, I get "Unknown Error" dialog.

Loading this in 4.7, I get "Anonymous user limit reached,
see http://www.redhat.com/mirrors.html.  Login incorrect."

Can we improve the error reporting here?  "Unknown error"
didn't give me a whole lot of clues as to what my next step
was, except to stop using this browser for this download.
->rjc though small I doubt we would be allowed to do it for rtm.

Hmm... odd... using the branch, I get:
  "Anonymous user limit reached, see http://www.redhat.com/mirrors.html. Login 
incorrect."

mcafee, perhaps you were getting some other transient error?

I can reproduce with beta3 bits on both WinNT and Linux.
Was this fixed on the branch?  Can you reproduce this with
the beta bits?  Reopening.

I don't have beta3 bits handy... can you still reproduce it with the branch or 
the trunk?

I can reproduce this on linux trunk build,
and win2000 netscape branch install.
Back to rjc, please let me know if you need help reproducing this.
I was also trying this during mid-day, maybe this is load-related?

-> ftp, +testcase
This site does not easily error, so I'll have to find another overloaded public
site or eventaully configure one.
