Use wget from the terminal and you can resume the download.
How to use it? man wget man is our friend
Thanks. After I'd seen your reply, I looked through many of my Linux books and found nothing on wget.
I'd appreciate your help with a trick to transfer a long URL into the wget line in a terminal. Let's say I go to distrowatch.com, and hover the cursor over the "download info" line -- a (LONG) URL will appear at the bottom-left area of Firefox. I can write down that URL, then get into Terminal and start the wget line, then type in the URL -- but surely there's an easier way to do that. I tried the Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V copy & paste thing, but it didn't work. And of course if I move the cursor, the URL disappears, killing the chance to use Ctrl-C anyway. What's the trick?
