Installing Ubuntu with AARNET mirror

This post applies to you, only if ...
  • you are in Australia 
  • and you want to use AARNET's  mirror (which for many people would work a lot faster than the standard Australian Ubuntu mirror)
 Default Ubuntu installation provides the standard AU mirror for Australians. To use AARNET, you have to enter the following details manually during installation:
  1. Protocol: http (ftp should also be supported but I haven't tested it)
  2. Mirror address:
  3. Mirror path: /pub/ubuntu/archive/ (don't drop the slashes, type them as shown)
