Well using http://http.us.debian.org/debian clearly wasn't too sensible of
me, as I am in the U.K. Thats the wall bit.

(http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian and
 http://ftp.fr.debian.org/debian were the paths I should have been using.)

However I have since discovered that I was using a 'Release' file under the
distribution subdirectory, rather than the main release file. This is the
bit that sucked.

Coffee Stirrers were the parts where I used a mixture of my hard disk, nfs
and http to try and do the install...

I've sorted out this problem and thanks for all the help.
