Another option is to use prozilla:

If the server supports the option, you can kill your download
and resume at a later time.

'Til now, I've been a lurking on the LFS lists.  I am intrigued
by the concept of source-based Linux distibutions, and have hit
the web sites for LFS, Gentoo, SourceMage, & others.  I don't
have broadband access currently, so dial-up speeds are a limiting
factor for me to try out any of these.

Suggestions and advice are welcome.
