DIDNT THEY SAY ASBEST 1.5 OR NEWER DOESNT REQUIRE INTERNET ??? AND WHEN I DISSCONNECT THE INTERNET IT GIVES ERROR IN THE CONSOLE !!!!
It depends on your network m8. Just let it download. Otherwise the only other way you can do it is to setup netboot. Which in all honesty if you can't get it to work through the regular install is going to be a pain in the ass. I'm still trying to get my netboot working with gentoo.

Netbooting basically means that you have an entire linux distribution on your linux server and all computers and PS3's in your house can boot that distro from over the network. It takes while to setup and I still haven't gotten it to fully boot into linux. I know I have something configured incorrectly but I don't know what.
Look in the linux section here for some guides on how to boot through external hdd or on the internal.
