If your still getting the same error, I'd suggest looking at the server
again and looking in the /potato directory. There probably is not only a
'main' directory, but also some files in 'main'. I can only check on my
CD, and there is a file called 'Contents-i386.gz'. Because you have
downloaded the binary-m68k it probably will be called
'Contents-m68k.gz'. This is probably the list of packages on the CD and
the installation program is looking for it...

Hope this helps a little further, Erik Laan.
