the bootnet.img does connect out to any website, as the ftp
address only outputs NULL as the ftp server it's connecting
actuall none of the installs work right
boot.img will has problems installing from a hard drive it will not
find any directories.. though they are corrent..
and the CD will not upgrade it stops at looking for packages
the Text mode comes up with an "Exception Occured" error, but it
doesn't in the graphical version
the exception error is
Traceback (innermost last):

rpm.error: error during upgrade check
Send a copy of your fstab, as well as output from fdisk, as there are
known problems in both areas which may be what you are seeing.
I have this same problem doing a new network install. At the bottom of the
error message (too long to type) it says : IOError: [Errno ftp error] 530 Login
incorrect... (this was just after entering in a user account). I have the exact
same beginning as the aforementioned dump, but I thought this would help someone
look at the ftp login process...
I found a work-around. After it prompts for a root password, it prompts for you
to set up a user account. If you enter in nothing there. It moves on.
Otherwise it does the fatal exception error noted above and fails.
