Spoke too soon:
"For a successful FTP install you must have a gateway in your LAN that is actually connected to the internet and routes any requests from the PC to be installed into the internet and back. Or, alternatively, you can of course have a properly set up FTP server in your LAN to install from. Point is that you cannot attach a modem to your PC and set up a connection with your provider with the Installer. It won't work."
This looks a lot like something which Arch' would provide if I could get Arch' installed in the first place.
Yes I do have cable and get a lot of FTP stuff downloaded, quite transparently. Can somebody tell me in simple terms what it means? Because it ain't going to let me proceed to Nirvana.
