    Thanks for the news! I downloaded the dvd1 .gz file, and it appears not to be a gzipped iso (as advertised), but rather the files from which the iso may be created (by using mkisofs).

    I don’t know if this is intentional, or if someone was in too big a rush to upload the file, and just went ahead and gzipped the files themselves, instead of first creating an iso.
