All the file URLs on the the download page at http://setiweb.ssl.berkeley.edu/download.php are 404's.

(It appears that all the versions changed to 3.20.)

The links are:
"Linux/x86" pointing to http://setiboincdata.ssl.berkeley.edu/sah/download/boinc_3.20_i686-pc-linux-gnu.gz
"Mac OS/X 10.3+" pointing to http://setiboincdata.ssl.berkeley.edu/sah/download/boinc_3.20_powerpc-apple-darwin.gz
"SPARC/Solaris" pointing to http://setiboincdata.ssl.berkeley.edu/sah/download/boinc_3.20_sparc-sun-solaris2.7.gz
and "Windows/x86" pointing to http://setiboincdata.ssl.berkeley.edu/sah/download/boinc_3.20_windows_intelx86.exe

I noticed that they all seem to be redirected so that the http://setiboincdata.ssl.berkeley.edu/sah part of the URL is replaced with http://setiweb.ssl.berkeley.edu when the link is used, and then the error message only shows the part not replaced, as follows for the "Windows/x86" link:

Not Found
The requested URL /download/boinc_3.20_windows_intelx86.exe was not found on this server.

It sounds like they updated the text on their webpage but either typo'd the file pointers or haven't moved the new files over yet.

It looks like the links have all been fixed.
