Hey everyone,

I am using Debian Squeeze, but since the Debian repos are a little bit 
out of date concerning Tex, I decided to install it via the network 
install using texlive. But I never succeeded in installing. In some 
point of time the installer always quits with the message

Installing [033/463, time/total: 25:44/28:21]: bin-bibtex [9k]
did not succeed.
Installation failed.

while the package changes. The first time I tried to rerun the 
installation it started where it left and continued installation to 
crash at some few packages later. But now the installation program 
always starts at the beginning.

Can someone tell me how to choose a more reliable server do I just have 
to download the whole DVD image and install Tex using the DVD?

Thanks alot!
