    You are probably wasting you time with something like this. Download speed are really dependent on what you are downloading and from where (and obviously your limits)

    There should be instructions in the downloaded archive regarding installation.

    or use this oneclick - this assumes you are using suse 11.0

    prozilla, right, so why do you ask?

    Install prozilla and prozgui from Packman (else search on
    http://software.opensuse.org/search) then type "prozgui".

    I thought I did. Note prozgui is a separate install. Once you installed it, open a console and type
    prozgui
    That should start it.

    Depends. Download managers can make use of more connections, and they can use mirrors to download one file from different sources at a time. Actually I found that while the result is often impressive, tinkering with the settings beforehand is wasting more time than the improved download saves me :-)
