Description

If  SmartDownload cannot resolve a URL to download a file, rather than hang-
bug 8022, it displays an error message box that is puzzling.

The box says Status:
                      NO   YES
----------------------------------------
Not sure what to do

Steps to reproduce:
1. modify a url in config.ini file so that it is incorrect
2. run the installer

Actual result: mostly blank error message box is displayed
Expected result: pertinent error message should be displayed

If you perform steps as noted to reproduce, now the SmartDownload hangs-if you
press cancel, the usual 'Are you sure you want to cancel?' dialog comes up.
Pressing yes exits the install.

Grace,
Could you confirm the following from SBI:

   - Netsacpe bug #9824: If you put an invalid ftp or web server name into the
     IDI file, the download would fail silently.  It now gives the usual
     "there's a temporary network failure, do you want to try again?" alert.
