When running sysinstal and setting up the network to do an ftp install,
it insists on pinging the nameserver, but since the nameserver is on
the other side of a NAT box that doesn't pass ICMP the ping always
Try an install with your nameserver on the other side of a NAT box.
A workaround is to give the nameserver prompt an IP that IS pingable,
then change the host to install from to an IP address.
