Thanks for your help - I am assuming this would be entered in a terminal session. But I am having a problem at the install stage. Are you familiar with the install screens, right at the start of the install, where it asks for proxy details? Then it goes and polls the mirrors for the packages? Well, I am getting "bad archive" or similar, so I am assuming that I need to enter proxy details on the line referred to above.
I may be wrong - maybe there's another reason I can't connect to the Internet.
