I guess you tried the images found at joeys. Those are _development_
images, probably pre- releases for beta-5 or rc1 (release candidate
1). So you are just lucky they work at all, although I'm using them
myself too, the netboot ones then ;-) .
I guess you could make a diff between images from the official
location and your own mirror and mail the mirror administrator to
urge him to update his machine.
