Help with Debian Install
I downloaded an image called debian-40r1-i386-netinst.iso. The install
went fine until I got to the step to 'Configure the Package Manager'.
When I do this step, it asks if I want to use a network mirror and I
choose 'yes'. It then asks for a protocol and I choose 'http' although I
also tried 'ftp' and it fails also. Next it asks for a country and I
choose 'United States'. Next it asks for a archive mirror. I have tried
nearly all, but currently I am trying 'linux.csua.berkeley.edu'. It asks
if I need a proxy and I leave that blank and hit 'continue'. Then it says
scanning the mirror, but I see no activity on my modem. After a few
seconds it reports that "Bad archive Mirror - The specified Debian
is either not available, or does not have a valid release file on it.
Please try a dirrerent
mirror". This happens no matter which mirror I choose. I am new to
and unfamiliar with its tools. Any help or advice would be appreciated.
