It now gets stuck at the point of retrieving packages, it complains 
about getting the packages.bz2 file and then exits.

I did get further when I tried using the version on the CD when I 
changed to using lenny, however as lenny is far behind with certain 
packages I really want to use either thesting or unstable (possibly I 
would prefer testing as that might be a bit more stable).
