java software download "j2re-1_4_2_04-windows-i586-p-iftw.exe"

Hi, I am trying to download from java.com the java software "j2re-1_4_2_04-windows-i586-p-iftw.exe"  automaticaly and manualy  and I got the problem: the Windows Installer says "Preparing to install.." and remains like that 20 minutes; after them cams the mesage "the website do not respond" and after them the computer becams very slow.
This is a brand new HP laptop XP pro in his first day.

Are you saving the file to your hard drive first or are you choosing the run option when downloading manually.  If you are using the run option try saving to hard drive first.  Also, are you behind a firewall, make sure the proxy settings will let you through.
Also, you might try finding a ftp site with it or try sun's archive site http://java.sun.com/products/archive/
the version 1.4.2_04 is obsolete. Download the version 1.4.2_07 instead and choose the complete download instead of the web installer to bypass your problem:

Goto http://javashoplm.sun.com/ECom/docs/Welcome.jsp?StoreId=22&PartDetailId=j2re-1.4.2_07-oth-JPR&SiteId=JSC&TransactionId=noreg

Accept the license agreement and the download the file j2re-1_4_2_07-windows-i586-p.exe (Size: 15 MB). After the download is finished, execute the file...
