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.

The path is:

wget "debian/dists/etch/Release.gpg"

The check for the signed GPG file can already be skipped by booting the 
installer with: debian-installer/allow_unauthenticated=true.

As Steve has analyzed the issue and a workaround is already available, I'm 
closing this report.
