I would like to report 3 issues with the install regarding netinstall.

All the issues are in the Select installation source window.

Because the download url is so long the "combobox" button disappears. So
the combobox looks like a normal textbox. This confused me.

The second issue the default first mirror mirrors.isc.org doesn't carry
9.0 files only 8.1 and 8.2. Maybe more mirrors don't carry them?

The third issue is that the netinstall stuff lives in
${ARCH}/netinstall/ while the url's you can choice from all end on
${ARCH}/ it also looks for pub/iso/9-CURRENT-20110405 while on
ftp.pcbsd.org its is all in pub/snapshots/9-CURRENT-20110405.

Hope this gets fixed in the next update.
