Downloading Problem

I have tried a number of times to download the RC since it became available, but after selecting the type and language and logging in, all that I get is a page with a link to manage my profile, with a circle of green dots spinning around. At first, I thought that it was because the server was too busy, but it has become apparent that there is some other problem...what is it?

Yes, I was going to say if nothing works, try copying and pasting those direct links into your address bar, and you should being to d/l it directly from MS.

Thanks, the direct links did the job. Strange though, because they didn't work when viewing the PM, either in Opera or IE. They did work when I clicked them from the email notification. Bottom line is that it is downloading.
