Sanity check: Could some kind person go out to:
ftp://xfer.nitric.com/pub/java-linux/JDK-1.2/i386/pre-v1/
and click on "jdk1.2pre-v1.tar.bz2".
What should you expect: start downloading a zipped-up .tar file.
What I got: binary gobbledy-gook right on the my browser window.
What happens if you click on it?
Any help appreciated before I try e-mailing the host(s) to ask them if they have a problem.
Thanks!
Matt

It's probably just because they haven't got the extension-to-mime-type set right on the server. Let's face it ".bz2" is not the most common file extension in the world.
you should still be able to right-click and select "download", though.
