    point of time the installer always quits with the message

How discouraging.  Sorry.

    Can someone tell me how to choose a more reliable server 

http://ctan.org/mirrors has the list of mirrors.  Look at that, pick one, 
then run
install-tl -location http://ctan.example.org/tex-archive/texlive/tlnet/2008

Of course the chosen hostname and its particular top-level CTAN path
have to be used.

Hope it flies.
