Thanks dewbie for your input.One of the moderators made the entry "Dialup is too slow for big files" which basically makes it crystal clear,the
situation that prompted me to query where and how to get these two large files.While I won't slag any option to get access online,I will
be required at a later date to get a more efficient connection.cheers

wget -c worked for me for years, yes it may take days, but no body generally needs to call me during the 11:30pm-6:00am timeframe. There is a version for windows and the command switches work the same as linux versions.
wget was made when the internet was slow and connections dropped whenever it felt like it. Also setting to limit rate used by wget so that you can surf while its SLOWLY pulling a file across the intertubes.

Unless I'm mistaken, I'd swear you meant Wink here.
Code:
wget --limit-rate=*k --user-agent="Opera/9.80 (X11; Linux i686) Presto/2.12.388 Version/12.14" --http-user=puppy --http-password=linux --no-cache --no-cookies --no-http-keep-alive *url

.. as an example.

pro-tip: always use wget -c even from start, also place --limit-rate switch LAST so you can CRTL-C up-arrow to bring back the command to edit and backspace over the --limit-rate switch when not surfing (like sleeping/eating/RR) then up-arrow twice to limit rate off and on as needed.

Code:

E:\>wget -c http://superb-dca2.dl.sourceforge.net/project/alphaos/alphaOS_2.0.0-
20130322.iso --limit-rate=10k

This is also handy if your a slow surfer, I hate on dialup how if you stay inactive for a few minutes it drops the call. A slow file download with wget keeps the connection alive.

also after the big download check for delta files those are helpful to stay updated.
