	Computer Science Department, Bonn University
System: NetBSD tangens 4.0 NetBSD 4.0 (GENERIC) #1: Thu Dec 27 15:39:36 CET 2007 i386
Architecture: i386 (but applies to all sysinst architectures)
Machine: i386
	Sysinst should have a way to list a .tgz source directory 
and navigate. This is useful for non-standard ftp servers, cd-roms, 
NFS or local disks.

(This was first suggested in pr 4789, together with other items that
are done now.)

 in principle, this is easy, and I could supply the patches to do that.
 You only have a problem with ftp downloads. libfetch (fetch(3)) would be ni=
 for that (ftp(1) cannot list directories).
 But in order to integrate that into the ramdisk, you'd have to configure the
 ramdisk depending on the OpenSSL compilation options (licencing issues).
 If you could help me with that, feel free to contact me, the binary doing
 this itself already exists.

 Regards, Julian
