I had no problems here.

Yeah! I second that...of course, after unpacking the basedebs, then it's 
getting the Release file...

Didn't have this problem at all.

Well, I'm stuck on the "4403980 4403980 Downloading packages" message. For at 
least 30 minutes. I don't think I crashed, because the cursor is blinking to 
the right, and there is occasional disk activitiy --- this is all on my LCII 
(m68K mac). I don't know what's going on here...This machine is not connected 
to anything internet related (yet), though it is connected via a serial cable 
to my Powermac...
