beta builds broken

Maybe its just bad luck on my part, but then again maybe not. We here
often recommend the daily builds or beta builds of etch as install
media to newbies having hardware trouble. 

Well, if you look at the debian-installer page you'll find a link to
http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/News/2006/20061017 which
claims that beta 3 images will be broken. I initially thought that
would mean that some aspect of the software would be broken. (and I
can't pass up a change to try and solve problems) Well, it turns out
that the images themselves are broken -- integrity checks fail. 

I thought this might have been a transient problem on my system so I
downloaded from a different machine and burned with different software
etc... nope. same problem. 

Anyway, word to the wise, watch out for the beta 3 images (except the
full installation disks) for the next little while.
