Problem installing woody on an Indigo2


I'm attempting to install debian woody on a SGI Indigo 2 and am running up against a problem half way through the install. I'm using a serial console (which works fine) and booting kernel-image-2.4.3-ip22-r4k via bootp/tftp.

I'm then  mounting install root 3.0.15 via nfs and then going through the installation proces. The problem comes when installing the base system (using 'network' as a source). The installer downloads about 3/4 of the packages and then stops with the error "Couldn't download modutils". 

I've tried this using a number of different debian mirrors as the source for my network install but always get the same error.

Has anyone got any ideas ?
