Sorry for incomplete report, am not in front of the computer I did the install
ftp.vic.keypoint.com.au has a full Debian unstable distribution on it. It is
served only by FTP, not HTTP.
All went well with the installation until the base system was to be installed
from the network. This failed because part of the installer changed the APT
method to http, which didn't work.
Changing /target/etc/apt/sources.list didn't help, so I completed the rest of
the install manually (from root prompt).
