The instructions say

> To do a network installation, download either install-tl-unx.tar.gz
(Unix) or install-tl.zip (larger; Windows or Unix), unpack it, and run
the included install-tl script, as described below. (To reiterate: you
must use install-tl from the pretest; trying to work with a TL
installation from previous years will fail completely.)

then talk about rsync if you want a local copy of the entire thing. I
always just download the installer script then let it grab the bits as
it goes along: that is after all how the release version is used.
