    I downloaded them by way of a dial-up connection to a T1
    Terminal Server connection to my server at work and it took
    about an hour for each.

    I wil check them out when I get to work Monday.

    qtr40enud1.img = 642 MBs
    qtr40enud2.img = 639 MBs
    qtr40enud3.img = 636 MBs

    Total 1917 MBs

    You can not download anything but the full libraries (all languages).

    no, to get them to work:

    you need to do one of two options

    1) Burn to three disk's, and install from CD
    2) Extract all the files to your local drive into say:
    C:\MSDN Library\
    using something like ISO Buster
    And install from there

    I have Easy CD Creator 5 Platinum. How can I burn the cds using cd creator.
    It seems like it only supports .cif and .iso images.

    Buggy, I dont have daemon tools. So I was wondering if there was
    another way, but thanks anyway.

    you could burn it with nero if you know how to mess around with the 'unknown' format settings.
