Re: Installation

Actually, I'm not sure if there is a proper list for this.  This list 
can't really answer questions about someone else's distribution, assuming
that's the source of the problem.  This list can help you determine if 
the CD is the source of the problem (or if it's just user error).  However,
we would need to know exactly the steps you take and selections you make 
prior to the "problem".  For example, one way that this problem could arise 
is if you picked a local directory which did not contain the any packages.
If there is nothing obviously wrong with your process, then the problem
have to be with the CD, it's contents, and/or it's structure.  But to
that issue, you'd need to contact the provider of the CD.
