From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0)
Description of problem:
Under the section describing how to install from an installation tree via
FTP or HTTP, the example give, "url --url
ftp://<username>:<password>@<servername>;/<dir>" includes a semi-colon
before the directory. This will cause the automatic installation to
default to manual.
You are correct. There was an extra semicolon there.
Fixed in CVS for next release.
