  incomplete instructions

Status in “ubuntu-docs” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  in the Network Install from Internet
  the instructions are insufficient...

  Download the appropriate initrd.gz and linux files for your architecture and distribution from
  (These files are quite small, under 10MB for either architecture.)

  The link brings up a page with different versions - why?
  choosing one, and then architecture, reveals numerous files and folders - now what?
  looking around i find a "initrd" that is 16M - contradiction to 10M or totally wrong file?
  As for "appropriate linux files" - what are these?

  So this is a show stopper for anyone new to linux that only has
  network install as an option.
