Sarge - Failed to Fetch


Sarge has now been successfully started from NetInst. (Thanks for the help everybody! )

When I go to install the rest from the internet I keep getting a Failed to Fetch error no matter what source I use. Sarge always downloads testing/main (about 3mb), finishes, and then gives the Failed to Fetch error, which doesn't make alot of sense.

How do I get the rest of the downloads?

Yes I have the same problem.
But How does I chose a good mirror for download, and where I can find adresse ?

Thank,

How can enter a good adresse when I use dselect (ftp://debian.ens-cachan.fr/debian-cd/images/ is write or not ? for exemple).

Thanks

fester225 says he already installed Sarge. schneiderj, you're looking for a Debian pacgakes repository or for a isos mirror? Because the link you provided looks like a CD images mirror and might not be what you're after. If you want to use this address in sources.list it's not valid.
It should look like 'deb ftp://ftp.<country>.debian.org/debian testing main', where <country> is the closest mirror to you.

Read this:http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/ap.../index.en.html

Thank for your help. I find a mirror with a good connection. My debian is working.
Now I have to learn it.
