the installer asked for `where the debian archive resides', I replied with
/instmnt (nfs mount of our local mirror) and it then proceeded to search
for files.  I did not get an opportunity to choose between `list all
available` or  'manual' selection.  I tried putting the full path to the
'current' boot-disks but the installer would not accept it.

anytime.  I've an ELC and an ultra5 to check it on too.  I'll let you know how
they go RSN.
