URGENT! Install Base System via network: settings wrong

Hi. With the help of this list I've got a woody megaraid set of boot
floppies made up. All is going well until the base system install.

I'm trying to do this through our firewall on On console
2 I can ping ftp.uk.debian.org successfully.

I punch in the following:
Download URL : http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian
Proxy		 :
Proxy port	 : 8000

And get the message
"Malformed release file

I've tried downloading the release file and the Contents-i386.gz file
(is this right?) to a local Linux box running Apache. However the
install system reports that is also

I'd be really grateful for some pointers for how to go from here.
