Description

CCK 6.1 network (stub) installer supports only ftp in file download. It would be 
more desirable to have it work with both ftp and http servers in the future.

The installer works with HTTP download too, provided the user chooses the
approprite option during download. To set the option for http download:
- During N6.1 setup, in the screen "Netscape 6(6.1) Setup - Download Options"
click on "Proxy settings" button. 
- Choose the radio button "Use HTTP for downloading files"

Note: Pls. do not try using url http://jazz/users or similar ones, we get a
network error.

Any way for CCK to configure N6 so that this HTTP proxy is the default for a
customized N6?

The above steps I mentioned was just to avoid a CCK respin. We can configure N6 
so that HTTP proxy is the default for a customized N6.1 by making changes to the 
code. That's why the bug is still open. However, these changes will only go into 
the next build and we can avoid a CCK respin just to correct this error.
