Attachment: http://drupal.org/files/issues/pseudo-url-fix.patch (481 bytes)

A misleading url example exists in the INSTALL.txt the instructions for
step one.  The pseudo url
(wget http://drupal.org/files/project/drupal-x.x.x.tgz) can give the
user a 404 error or an invalid file.

These examples do not work, they give 404 file not found errors:
wget http://drupal.org/files/project/drupal-4.6.0.tgz
wget http://drupal.org/files/projects/drupal-4.6.0.tgz

This example downloads an strange html page:
wget http://drupal.org/files/project/drupal-4.6.0.tar.gz

This example succeed in downloading the tarball:
wget http://drupal.org/files/projects/drupal-4.6.0.tar.gz

A patch is attached.
