It worked when I hit it. Now it reads: "Warning Your direct file download has been blocked as a leech attempt becuase (sic) your referral is not a verified archive website. Please click on the file name above to view details and download links."

The dude blocked the direct link anyway... Now it says (with a misspelling): Warning Your direct file download has been blocked as a leech attempt becuase your referral is not a verified archive website.

BTW, I make my own boot flash drives from templates at reboot.pro If I need a Linux/DOS/PE all in one I use Hiren's Boot CD -- They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety. - Ben Franklin
