Re: rescue cd installation

The VNC installation method seems to also be broken. Instead of the standard GUI, I
get a blank X root window.

There's also no confirmation/bailout if a bad http installation source is given.
E.g., use: http://path/to/i386/os  as the install server or some random IP address.
