Bug Description

After manually starting wubi (due to no autorun, see Bug #402842) install appeared to start, but then after quickly getting to ~30% of the way, the progress bar labled "Downloading karmic-desktop-i386.iso.torrent appeared to stop and make no progress for half an hour. Quitting did stop it, so it wasn't locked up.

The window said rev 137 in the lower left corner.

This is with kubuntu-netbook, so the ISO may have a different name than Wubi expects.

I've added the following entry. We should double-check that the final release URL is correct:

[KubuntuNetbookEdition-i386]
arch=i386
name=Kubuntu Netbook Edition
packages=kubuntu-netboot
metalink=http://releases.ubuntu.com/kubuntu/9.10/kubuntu-9.10-netbook-i386.metalink
metalink2=http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/kubuntu-netbook/daily-live/current/karmic-netbook-i386.metalink
website=http://www.kubuntu.org
ordering=3

I've also built a new binary (r141) that will appear on the next set of CDs.
