something along the lines of "You're currently
installing from a CD/DVD - do you want to use netwrok repositories?"
I installed squeeze (this is still testing, right? :) ) a couple of times
recently, but haven't seen this message, is it only in the full CD/DVD? Or
has it to do with the GUI install, I used the debian installer (text mode)
on a netinstall.

The netinstall only has the essential packages for a bare-bones system, so it cannot offer installation from the CD/DVD - packages must be fetched from the network.

Indeed, unless the billboards fall
