Comments/Problems: The d-i says it fails to download a valid Release.gpg file from the mirror specified.
I am installing the Debian etch 4.0 r0 onto HP machines through network install (PXE boot with DHCP/tftp).
Everything goes alright until it (netboot d-i) tries to fetch the "Release.gpg" file from the mirror which is just
another machine running sarge in a LAN. In reality, the ISO (DVD) that I have mounted at the HTTP mirror
does not have any "Release.gpg" file in the specified directory.
