Yes. I was using the default flavor on i386... It asks for the path on the
install CD where it can find a Release file or a basedebs.tar file. It seems
to completely skip the screen where you selected the the install media, as I
no longer have the option to install via http/ftp/nfs... It just asks me to
install from the CD.
