[tex-live] Broken Net-Installer for Win32

Hi all,

I also got that problem today when using the standard link to a randomly
chosen mirror which did not have the new version yet. install-tl.zip
taken directly from ctan.org solved this problem.

As the two installer files are not that big, wouldn't it be better to
leave out the mirror mechanism and place direct links to ctan.org to
these two files? All those syncronization problems could be avoided and
you would not get to much additional traffic, as most people trying
faulty installers will afterwards go directly to ctan.org anyway (or
give up on TeX Live, which would be even worse).
