Having been unable to do so in Redhat v5.1 and v5.2, I tried
to install v6.0 using FTP via our proxy, Netscape Proxy
server v3.5.

The installer failed with the message "unknown server

A look on the console screen indicated that instead of
trying to log into the proxy with the supplied username and
password, it was trying to log into the anonymous ftp server
with the username and password.

Please fix this, having to download 450MB worth of data just
to actually install less than 100MB of it is a real waste.

non anonymous proxy is not supported, nor is it high on the list of
things to do
