    Thanks. Now it will be slow :-)

    But people downloading from some unknown mirror should always be very
    aware of the possibility of trojans!

    Why using an Amercian mirror while sitting in Germany? Jsut stupid.
    Use German or at least European mirrors.

    That is an official mirror server from the official mirror list at
    fedora.redhat.com.

    OK, then it is fine. Then I'm wondering why the OP did mention it.
    Oh well, there are better things to think of :-)

    They haven't work, yet and I don't know whether they do now! I experienced that
    there's no working mirror except this one. But most mirrors are open now in europe.

    There is no such problem so long as you verify the MD5sums against the
    signed MD5sum list. With this information, you can get your ISOs from
    anywhere and rest assured you have what the Fedora Core group are
    distributing.

    People may read your advice and think that they don't need to check the
    MD5sums because they got their copies of ISOs from an official mirror. This
    would be a bad assumption. Do not believe that because you got your ISOs
    from a certain place that those files are okay, regardless of where you got
    them. You should always check the MD5sums.

    I used it for two or three of the isos, and the checksums matched the
    official ones. It was the fastest server I found.
