Gets all the .iso files.  This includes the CD, DVD, and netinst isos.

So I tried:

wget -b -nv -r -l1 --no-parent -nH --cut-dirs=6 -A "disc?.iso"

and this only got the index.txt file

What is the proper format for the -A information?
You want "*-disc?.iso" or similar.

-A only matches suffixes when it doesn't contain any wildcards;
otherwise, it must match the whole base filename.

Thank you. I did not get this from the man pages. Probably just did not read it carefully enough....
