Did you check the iso against the md5 sums in the checksum.md5 file?  Every 
time I downloaded an image via http, it was garbled, which meant I burned a 
few coasters before figuring it out.  

Retrieving it via ftp seemed to work, though I have not yet installed using 
the working disc.  

On a different note - What's the reason for the separate-but-matching 
"DragonFlyBSD" and "DragonFly" directories?
