Re: win32 http server

This is the case I was thinkinbg of.  This is especially true if
installing another arch.  Installing the my alpha and sparc (neither
had as cdrom) would have been much easier if I had a win http server.  As
it was I could use nfs, but not everyone will be able to.

A new user without another unix box around who wants to install debian on
a machine without a cdrom drive could really use this.
