Hi, All:

      I'm having trouble installing MinGW 5.0.3, trying to follow Duncan Murdoch's suggestions (http://www.murdoch-sutherland.com/Rtools/). I download "MinGW-5.0.3.exe" as he suggested. After double-clicking on it, I get past "Welcome to MinGW" and select either "Download and install" or "Download only" and choose to install "Current". Whether I select only "MinGW base tools" or that plus "g++" and "g77" compilers, I get the following error message while "Downloading mingw-runtime-3.10.tar.gz":

      "InetClinet plug-in: Your internet connection seems to be not permitted or dropped out! Please reconnect and click Retry to resume installation."

      After clicking "cancel", I got the following error message:

downloading mingw-runtime-3.10.tar.gz
SendRequest Error
Could not download

      I got this on two computers, one running Windows 2000 server and the other using Windows XP 5.1, Service Pack 2.

      What do you suggest I try to get past this?
