If I recall correctly, I normally download the "boot.iso" image from mirror 
(and arcitecture) of choice eg

burn a CD, boot into the installer and proceed with installation over the 

Lot quicker to download the boot image rather than the rescue disc (which is 
at :

I actually find its better to download the DVD image with bittorent, verify 
it, extract it into a web server directory on another machine on the LAN, 
grab the boot.iso, burn a boot CD and then do the install from the local 
HTTP source ... much quicker, less likley to time out and less onerous on 
the mirrors.
