This is not going to work. The ISO file system is embedded in the zip 
file system. You could use the zips of the crazy release that are 
currently in the same state as the XMas release.

If your computer can run VMWare or Qemu you can also directly boot the 
ISO CD image file.

You can for example use
AosPing.Ping ~ to Ping the bluebottle server without DNS 
Or you can use the graphical FTP Browser ( WMFTPClient.Open ~).

The name has no influence on the connectivity. Since it is not used for 
more than display purposes but. I would write the full name
