I as able to install 9.1 using the system update and my local repo.
I still have issues installing it from the DVD, after over 55 minutes of 
slowing copying files and extracting I gave up.  I have tried on 2 
different computers with 2Gb and 3Gb of ram.  installing only LXDE and 
everything else leaving it as default values.  32bit version.

On my machine updates with system-update everything seems to work, the 
network configuration has a small bug.  If you customize the DNS and you 
click on "public server", then "OK" or "CANCEL" for the new window, it 
closes the network configuration completely.  Other than that I did 
change the proxy and it seems like it worked correctly. I would suggest 
a small window to ask the user for what domains/IP they do not want to 
use the proxy (the NO_PROXY var), and autofil it with the current values

Anyway, great job.
