As I said in another reply to myself, I tried configuring it manually.  But
that was with pre-RC2, I have just tried RC2.  That also fails, and in looking
around the consoles on console 4 I found the following error messages:-

DEBUG: virtual package configured-network
DEBUG: (process 7143) segementation fault
WARNING *** Configuring choose-mirror failed with error code 139
WARNING *** Menu item choose-mirror failed

So it would appear that there is a problem with the manually choosing the
mirror function.
