Huh? Make sure you've entered the FTP-location correctly; the longer the name,
the higher the probability of a typo. Also take a look at the pseudo-image.log
file, it might contain some clues.
And if you can't get FTP going, try HTTP instead. It's only a little less
efficient but known to work in most strange situations. (It might be that your
ISP suddenly decided to block "active" FTP connections; in that case
http://lists.debian.org/debian-cd-0010/msg00026.html might be helpful.)
Finally, if you can get _some_ packages but not others, that could be due to
the FTP sites being somewhere between 2.2rev0 and 2.2rev2 at this moment,
which means that several files `needed' for the CD images have disappeared.
Even though your report does seem to exclude this in your case, it might be
helpful to other readers of this list ;-)
