Please DO NOT download via HTTP/FTP from uk.debian.org, especially not from
Hong Kong! This is guaranteed to fail each time you try, because HTTP/FTP were
not designed to handle large files (650MB !!) at all. We designed the
Pseudo-Image Kit just to make sure you get the image entirely in one try, and
without causing lots of unnecessary network traffic. It may seem a little more
complicated, but you'll be amazed by its prestations!
