As has been said before, downloading a file of that size just isn't going to 
work. Even if it did the database would probably be huge and not very 
responsive in loadstone itself.

When I tried converting it using the newest latest python osm tools, it got stuck and said error in line somthing unsubscriptable object or something like that and exited the converter program. Maybe a 2.5 or so 2.5gb file is just way too big? the osm file came in a 136mb .bz2 file which I unzipped to reveal the pennsylvania.osm file.
