Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 6230
RHEA files can't be downloaded

Filenames with a colon in them, such as the new updated RHEA

of the colon. This is a big problem because many users (like
myself) who are trying to do a clean Linux install will

the bootdisks, etc. I can work around this problem, but I
assume that many other users will not be able to figure out
why these files can't be downloaded.
Please change the filenames as follows:
Replacing the colon with a dash will solve this problem...
