    debian problems

    I'm trying to install via network but when I start downloading it says the files are corrupt. This has happened before but retrying seems to have stopped it. The site is http://http.us.debian.org/debian. Anyone know what some other good fast mirros are with woody on them

    Where are you? (where on earth, I mean). Try choosing a server that is geographically closer to you. The list of servers is here:

    http://www.debian.org/distrib/ftplist

    Find a link close to you, and write it down. Then when you do the install, you can just type it in exactly as it is.

    And be sure to install apt-spy, and then run apt-spy after you've installed Debian! This will make sure that your sources.list file contains only the fastest servers for you to download from
