    Note - Some have had problems downloading this file. Here is what one person found:
    The problem was on my end. I fixed it by doing a fresh download after
               clearing my history and temporary internet files."
    IE-4 and 5 have a tendency not to download a file if it already has a file of the same name.
    If it tries to download and then has a problem, and you want to try again, the file name
    already exists. Try clearing as above, it should fix the problem. Also try "saving-as" to a
    different directory.
