What bug number?

Firewall breaks network. Film at 11.

File a bug for the useless error message?

Note that I wasn't actually talking about an NFS install from .iso
images -- I was talking about a normal NFS install from the install tree
directly.

Anyone doing periodic tests of rawhide as the release approaches would
surely be rsyncing the expanded tree rather than downloading a full new
set of ISO images each time? And then it's a _very_ small amount of
network traffic to update that rawhide tree to the final release,
instead of yet another full download.
