Oh yea, syntax :-) Thanks, I was using rysnc options, they are not in the
zsync man page.

I renamed the iso on my box, changed 'beta' to 'rc', the download started at
44%, better than starting over.

'zsync <url of zsync file>', run from the directory your copy of the iso is
in so zsync can find it.

Thanks to Shane for posting the heads up on zsync, Debian uses it and I am
glad to see 'others' using it as well.
