Debian 6.0 network installation query


Hi guys,

I am trying how to do a network install of debian,by dumping the contents of the entire DVD on my http server,and booting off my other machine using the minimal cd and selecting the local mirror.

The Error i get when i proceed to the 'download installer section' are
Code:
Menu item 'download installer selected'
anna wget: server returned error: HTTP/1.1 404 NOT FOUND
net-retriever: error dists/squeeze/Release is unsigned
I think i need to create a release.gpg file,under dists/squeeze/ but how do i do it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.Thanks

i selected expert install > then network configuration > select debian mirror (this is where i give the hostname of my http server).Currently i am using a mini.iso from here (http://ftp.nl.debian.org/debian/dist...mages/netboot/)to boot up my host on which i want to install the OS,by following this tutorial.
