Installing Lenny on PowerMac?

I have a temporary need to install Lenny on a PowerMac G4 so I can run some tests on a "fresh" installation for a user who is unable (for various reasons) to upgrade to Squeeze at this time.

When I run the netinst installer CD all seems well until it wants to setup sources.list. Then it dies claiming to be "unable to determine code-name for release". (I don't remember the exact wording of the error message, but the intent is clear.)

Is there a work-around for this that would allow me to do my testing?

Would I have better luck with a DVD, where I wouldn't need to get anything from the network mirrors until after the installation is complete?
