What can I do to get around an error during installation?
This is the error I'm getting:

        "[!!] Download installer components
        The installer failed to download a file from the
        mirror.  This may be a problem with your network, or
        with the mirror.  You can choose to retry the download,
        select a different mirror, or cancel and choose another
        installation method

The installation gets as far as Debian archive mirror, loading
additional components before the error turns up.  Neither of the options
(retry or change mirror) work either.

I've obtained the netboot image[1] and initiated the installation:

        load (usb0,0)/vmlinuz-
        initrd (usb0,0)/initrd.gz
        g console=tty no_auto_cmd

Networking and everything up to the error seems fine.
