Java 2 SDK Installation

I am running Windows 98 SE and need to install the latest Java2 SDK. Now, the file is 116 MB and I am on a dial-up connection.
When I download the Sun Download Manager, I get the message "Bad Command Or File Name".
Are there any other download managers I can use on the java.sun website, cos most of them don't work.

Welcome to JavaRanch, Amil!
The latest J2SE SDK (1.4.2_03 I believe) is about 49BM, not 116MB. It's available at
Note that you can click to download just the J2SE SDK or the J2SE SDK cobundled with NetBeans IDE from this page.
I just tested the download of the J2SE SDK with Flashget, a download manager, and it worked.
