File retrieval optons:

1) Use browser  --
or another of the Fedora mirrors. Public list is at

2) Use wget  --  "wget -c";

     Install using "sudo rpm -ivh system-config-display*.rpm"

3) Download and install directly using one command:
"sudo rpm -ivh";

Another note: Don't just settle for a random mirror. Try out the
mirrors listed in the Fedora Public list. Find one that reliably
connects. Put your selection in fedora.repo and fedora-update.repo in
/etc/yum.repos.d/  (disable the mirrorslist, enable and insert the
mirror's url to the baseurl line) or create your own
reliable-mirror.repo file..

Check the color depth.  You should be able to do this using
System->Preferences->Display in Gnome.
