This is a great question. The reason is stated in the disclaimer that
pops up when the user first installs modules: Don't use the web to
load the program if you are in a country that regularly monitors
internet activity and you might risk persecution for doing so. The
instructions, which most of us don't bother to read, give the values
needed to do the install.
So the little bit of pain we all go through to help our brethren in
those places is not too much to ask.
When you install from CD, the install establishes the original drive
of the CD as a download site.
Hope this answers your question.
In His Service,
