The list of all currently known prime numbers would fill up more hard drive space than is available to most Fortune 500 companies.

I know that isn't a very helpful answer, but it is a fact.

There are programs available that will generate prime numbers, you could get one and use it to generate a list as large as you like.

Alternatively, there are literally hundreds of web sites with lists ready for you to download. I wouldn't trust most of them, but this is a good one:

A related question has been asked before.
