Bug#67082: "Choose debian archive" box confusing
When installing the base system from NFS, I first get asked for a server
and mount point, and then for a directory within that mount that holds the
Debian archive, with the default being "/instmnt". My immediate response
was to replace this with "/debian", since that was the correct directory
name in the mounted filesystem. When I did this, I found that pressing
return had no effect. I had to use the shell on tty2 to discover that I
should have typed "/instmnt/debian".
Either the box should automatically prepend "/instmnt" to the supplied
path, or it should explain what /instmnt is. Error messages when an
invalid path is supplied would be nice, too.
