Bug#56604: Initial apt install config problems

Package: boot-floppies
Version: 2.2.5

After the first reboot, we are now asked for apt configuration. Nothing
worked for me:

When setting up for NFS, it didn't ask for a server name, just a path.

When setting up for HTTP, it didn't put a / in front of the directory,
and when given one, it just hung when trying to fetch from it (and yes,
Lynx has no problem with the same URL).

When setting up for file (after mounting an NFS mirror by hand) it
requires that the sources directory be present before it will continue
and gives no option to skip sources - which I don't have mirrored.

Eventually I edited /etc/apt/sources.list by hand with no further
