Re: Getting .list files for potato (was FW: Burning Potato CD)

Has anyone been able to generate the .list files themselves using the
method recomended on this page:
       http://cdimage.debian.org/potato_pre.html ?

Here is what the page says.

       If are no .list files, you can make them yourself easily
       (Windows: also see below)[sic]  
    1) Start rsync-download of the image (without pseudo-image). 
    2) Watch the downloaded file, let it grow to about 2 MB. 
    3) Copy the first 2 MB of the downloaded image to a temporary file. 
    4) Stop the rsync command, this will remove the downloaded file,
       but your copy is still there.  
    5) Run pi-makelist on the copied 2 MB, which is all it needs (also
       see the README), and thus make your 
       own .list file. 
    6) Now use make-pseudo-image in the usual way. 

When I tried the rsync I did not see any file being generated even
though I waited a long time and have a fast connection.  Does
rsync hide the file it is building up somewhere else?
