Somewhere in Canadia?  I'm not really sure. If you're not in the States,
you are probably better off picking a local mirror.

This site,, will generate a
sources.list which should be specific to your country (it will also add
a bunch of other repositories you might find interesting, if you want).
Don't remember if the installer actually set the correct mirror.
