Your error sounds like either a problem with trying to download a 
package from a repository that's down or a firewall issue. You could try 
again (you probably already have) to see if the site comes back up. 
Otherwise, your firewall may be blocking the web request (but that 
should show up in your security logs...)

Can you run the standard Plone Windows Installer on the Server machine? 
You could try that just as a test.

Not much help, maybe, but let me know if you can find more info from 
your logs, etc.
