Downloading "powerpc-rtems4.10 gcc" for a few hours on Fedora 12

I'm a BSD and OS X guy myself.  I have a VM installed for RTEMS development with Fedora 12.  This morning when I software updated it downloaded a single file for RTEMS Fedora 12 - it was some kind of package descriptor update.  I then decided to update again and sure enough it had new RTEMS packages to download.  However, for the last two hours it's been trying to download the 2.8 MB file "rtems-4.10-powerpc-rtems4.10-gcc-4.4.3-10.fc12 (i686)".

I tried to locate the file to see how far it had progressed but couldn't find it.  I found the similar "-9" instead of "-10" file, but didn't find any partially downloaded files there.

I'm using Fedora 12 and updating using the "system->administration->software update" menu selection.

Is the site just overloaded, or could this happen if a file is corrupted back at the download site?

Where can I find the partially downloaded file to see how it's going?

Thanks -
