Can rescue disk image be used to upgrade?

I'm using rescue disk image to upgrade my system. But there is a confusion
about stage2.img. It seems that the CD contains it, but it is tricky to get to it.
When I'm asked, what media should be used, the answer "local CD/DVD" is not
accepted, because the CD is not an install media.
So I have to choose HTTP, configure the network interface and specify the http URL.
Then the installer discoveres that there is a media in the drive and asks me if
I'd like to check its checksum.
If I answer "Skip", then stage2.img is downloaded from the net, which takes some
But if I answer "Go on, check my media", then the installer complains that there
is not checksum on the disk, _but_ it then uses the media and copies stage2.img
to my hard drive.
Isn't that all weird?
I admit I'm confused, but it may not be totally my fault...
Which tree were you trying this with? Actual test3 or something right before or
It was actual test3, downloaded by torrent.
Chris fixed some things around this last week.
