It always used to work for me, but appeared to have stopped working with the most recent CD I have received (the 960501-SNAP).  I couldn't find any combination of URL which would allow an install direct from the CD mounted on a remote machine.  Previously (2.0.5, 2.1R etc.) it always seemed to work OK if a trailing slash was used as well, eg.

with the 960501 CD, no combination of URL appeared to load both the root image and the dists successfully.
