Say, are you talking about the installation step 'installing the base
system'? I never managed to get those served through my apt-proxy,

If anyone ever has, please tell me how.

The proxy serves any apt-get requests good enough (though while I'm at
it, I'd like to complain about the long latency times).
Just for the fun of it, I just tried it manually:

schnobs@pferd:~$ wget
           => `basedebs.tar'
Resolving zwerg... done.
Connecting to zwerg[]:9999... connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 404 Unknown extension.
03:17:16 ERROR 404: Unknown extension..

By the way: how does apt-get catch the files? Until now, I thought it
calls wget. But then I noticed that I first had to get wget myself in
order to run my little test.
