I'm behind a firewall/Web proxy that requires authentication for HTTP, but lets FTP through. So when I first set up apt after rebooting, I told it to use FTP as a file source. It found FTP mirrors all right, but later when it tried to look for HTTP mirrors, it wasn't smart enough to ask me for HTTP proxy information.

I decided to re-do the entire install, and this time I told apt to use HTTP as a file source. This time it did ask me for HTTP proxy information, which worked the first time. This may be an issue more relating to apt than to the installer, but I figured it was worth reporting here anyway.

We are closing this installation report for one of the following
- it was reported with a pre-lenny version of Debian
- indications in the installation report give the feeling that
  the reported problem waslying in another software, unrelated to
  D-I, which we can't easily identify.
- indications in the installation report suggest that it may have been
  fixed in a more recent version of a D-I component
- it was successful and we forgot closing it..:-)
- it has no information we consider useful

The D-I team is currently in the process of cleaning out the old spool
of installation reports that haven't bene processed yet. 

In case you think that the problem you reported has chances to be
still present, please reiterate your installation test with
a more recent image of D-I, if you're in position of doing this.

You'll find daily builds at
http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer. We recommend you choose
the netboot image, in the "daily builds section", then choose to
install "squeeze" when prompted.

If some problems are found, please report them with a new bug sent
against installation-reports.

Many thanks for your understanding and your help improving Debian,
past and present.
