True.  But with, there are 7 zip files and I could never get the 
proper URL.  That's why I went with the flash version to have MOS figure out 
the details.  But you're right, as long as you know the full URL for individual 
patches you can do the same with without flash.

Thanks for the tip - I can't believe I'd never used wget before, but I just 
looked into it based on your recommendation and I found it's not really 
dependent on the version of MOS that you use (Flash vs. HTML).  You can use 
wget without using MOS at all as long as you know the URL for the patch.  There 
are detailed instructions in MOS Doc ID 841055.1, but basically you just run it 
like this:

wget --http-user=yourname@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx --http-password=yourpwd 

What the Flash version of MOS does for you is creates a shell script to 
automatically generate the command for you and also handles some extra 
functionality like SSL, Cookies, etc. and will also automatically include 
downloads for prerequisite patches if you tell it to so it may be helpful in 
some cases if you want those extras, but it's not necessary.

are you usin wget?  I found speeds much faster using this, plus it allows 
direct download to my server instead of going to PC, then PC to server.  It 
also appears to be only available through the flash version of MOS.
