[wellylug] 2Gb Linux file size limit help

I'm downloading a DVD image. At 2,147,483,647 bytes I get the merror message:
File size limit exceeded. Same with both a reiser & ext3 filesystem.

Any suggestions for a fix or workaround? 

I guess this is the 2Gb file size limit on 32 bit systems. I don't wanna get a
64 bit box for this just yet :-)
