Hello,

Thanks for many good tips. I tried both ftp and http, both ftp.funet.fi 
and mirror.clarkson.edu, and always I end up soon after the above dialog 
screen (in Mathew's message) with the following error:
 

                    +---------------+ Error +----------------+ 

                    |                                        | 

                    | Unable to retrieve                     | 

                    | http://ftp.funet.fi//pub/mirrors/cent  | 

                    | os.org/5.3/os/i386/images/stage2.img.  | 

                    |                                        | 

                    |                +----+                  | 

                    |                | OK |                  | 

                    |                +----+                  | 

                    |                                        | 

                    |                                        | 

                    +----------------------------------------+ 



Strange, because I can download that image both with wget (from a http 
mirror) and with ftp (from a ftp mirror). Should I try downloading the 
whole i386 directory, and publish it locally with Apache, or something 
like that?
