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,
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.
