Hi all,
I tried to use network installation of the pretest TL but it died
immediatelly with " Could not load TeX Live Database ...". Looking at
the message and then to the servers I found that install-tl selects
the mirror in the Czech Republic but the mirrors contain TL 2008 only,
not TL 2009. Could the installer verify whether the TL database exists
on the server and if not, select another mirror?

BTW: I do not have space for CTAN mirroring but I could mirror TL. My
computer is on a GB network.
