That's not easily possible, as far as I know. However, the texmf-tiny
package (~1.8MB) is available as a minimal-download option.
If you keep having trouble with this, try using wget (now in contrib)
to download the files by hand. Wget can continue downloading
partially downloaded files (-c switch).
Hmm, what does setup.exe do with partly downloaded tarballs?

That's not good. What is your $VARTEXFONTS set to? Could you try:
VARTEXFONTS=$HOME/texmf dvips -o x.ps sample2e.dvi

Yes, this should be ok; although unsetting it:
should also work. Any other variables that get set by fpTeX?
Thanks for your report,
