I read the USGS FAQ section about download problems and had to change some stettings on my computer.  It works now as far as downloading goes.  I'll get back to you when that process is complete

Free space.

OK, I just tried again to download my first set of topo data.  I got this message both times:

OK, thanks for the replies.  Let me get some data downloaded using the Excel hyperlinks to the USGS web site first.  I tried last night but after about 30 minutes I got an error message asking me to try again later.  When I get to the processing step, I will start a new thread in the map making forum.  My computer has a 1.99 GHz processor, 512 MB RAM and about 23 GIG on the hard drive.  Is this enough to do this??

I did register on the site and download, but can't get past the license page.  I can use it for free for 7 minutes, but that's not quite enough time  :)

Apparently you have to have a license to use the IDL software.  I should have assumed at some point this was going to get expensive.  Is there any way around this?

Well, I'm a bit nervous about doing it having just read the water section.  I am ready to download my first quad as soon as the IDL download for Dem2Topo is complete.

Dan,

I was thinking about purchasing TOPO USA 2008 when I stumbled on your site.  This is unbelievable.  Thanks for all of your work.  I was thinking of giving VA shot using your directions, unless it is on your short list.
