Sort of. It "hung" at the progress bar, with no progress shown, and I
was just about to add this info to this posting, when after about 3 or 4
minutes, the progress bar filled up with yellow and I thought "Yea!",
but then the installer routine looked like it started over, with the
first welcome screen saying stuff like "Welcome to Debian 3.0.r2(?).
This is the (somewhat inaccurately labeled) boot-floppies image blah
blah blah". When I hit "Continue" it jumped to the "Install Base Image"
portion of the install, this time having a full Debian URL, which now
seems to be working. I'm watching the yellow of the progress bar creep
across the screen. Seems I'm making progress.
