Yes, well, I hope we have dhcp in the next version; I think tftp/nfs
installation is going to become probably a premier method for anyone
doing more than one installation on the same network.

Yes, I relent; I think it would be leave off the http/ftp methods.

Enrique, are you going to remove the other, obsolete, dpkg methods as
I discussed earlier in this thread?  Can you give a list of methods
