Option to disable security.debian.org on install
I was reinstalling a system with Sarge tonight, and ran into the
horrible experience of waiting for security.debian.org at less than
4kB/sec. I had hoped for a while that the speed might pick up, but
eventually had to kill it, since the installation would've taken well
over four hours.
In the old woody installer, I had to explicity enable the security
patches from security.debian.org. Would it be possible to get this
option back? It's pretty brutal when the server is being so slow...
Perhaps a better option would be to install the security packages only
after the first installation has completed? That way, at the very
least, I'd have a usable system while waiting for the updates.
