Okay, I give up.
5 Atempts to download it. The last time my connection broke down after 4 hours
and firefox does not let me resume.

At the congress I should be able to get a local worldfile onto a larger laptop.
Whar command-line do I have to run with osmosis to extract europe and to
get only ways (and their nodes) that contain a given tag=value -combination?

Is this
osmosis --read-xml planet.osm.bz2 --way-key-value
keyValueList="highway.motorway" --bounding-polygon
file="europe_outline.txt" completeWays=yes --used-node  --write-xml

The page
links to http://www.maproom.psu.edu for polygon-files. However I
cannot find a europe-
polygon there. Where can I get that shape?
