We can't do ISO installs with HTTP and FTP because you can't stream the data
like you can with NFS.  You would have to pull the entire ISO into memory at one
time before you could use it.  Very few people have enough ram to make this
Comment 2 Brent Fox 2001-10-24 15:25:47 EDT
We do not support installs through proxy servers and have to plans to.  I
recommmend that you download the ISO images and do either cdrom or hard drive
