|I had trouble downloading a file.|
|This is a fairly broad statement, but there are a few things to watch out for. Sometimes after clicking on the link to download the file, the download process will appear to start & stop sporadically or even quit unexpectedly. This is usually caused by an interruption in the flow of data between our server and your web browser. This may be caused by heavy internet traffic or a large number of users attempting to access our server at the same time. At any rate, if you suspect that the file did not download correctly or if you got an error message during the download, try it again.|

|Chances are the file was not completely downloaded. This can occur when there is a burp in the stream of data between our web server and your computer. Generally this happens when our site is extremely busy or the internet traffic is heavy. Try downloading the file again at another time. Internet connections would not always be fast and downloads would not always work the first time.|
|I can't find the file I just downloaded.|
|By default Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer will save downloaded files to preset directories or folders. If you are using the MacOS, files will usually end up in either the same folder as the Netscape Navigator application or on the Desktop. Windows users will usually find downloads in the C:\TEMP\ directory or you will be prompted as to where to save the download.|
