I've CC'd debian-powerpc so that others may benefit (if I manage to
help you out).

I'm assuming you mean my post to debian-powerpc, so assuming you are
trying to install Debian on a PowerPC machine, I'd advise you to use
e.g. http://br.powerpc.mirror.debian.net as mirror. I must admit,
however, that I'm not quite sure how to manually add a mirror (since I
haven't installed Debian since the switch to the new mirrors).

I hope this helps.
