The tail end of /var/log/setup.full is:

[... elided ...]
And, in fact, those scripts are not there: instead, I've got files with
each of those names with '.done' appended (e.g.
"/etc/postinstall/base-files-mketc.sh.done"). However, these scripts have
not been executed (or at least haven't run successfully).
I've also found that if I attempt to run these scripts by hand from bash with:
/bin/sh -c /etc/postinstall/base-files-mketc.sh.done
I get the same error message:
/etc/postinstall/base-files-mketc.sh.done: not found
This is the same error I get for "/bin/sh -c /tmp/fakefilename", so it
appears that the problem is that /bin/sh can't find its files for some reason.
And, in fact, if I run /bin/sh and try to run the scripts from there, I get
the same "not found", along with the same error for running /bin/ls and
others, all of which work from bash.
After further research in the mailing lists, I believe my problem is
similar to one discussed this April on the mailing list. The message that
contained the first real diagnosis is:
Which diagnoses the problem as having something to do with privileges which
are more strongly checked with sh than with bash. My W2K machine is not
part of a domain, and I'm installing as an administrator-privileged account
for all users.
After running the passwd-grp.sh.done postinstall script manually using bash
instead of sh, I get the following:
bash-2.05b$ /usr/bin/getfacl /etc
# file: /etc
# owner: Tim Dierks
# group: Users
Any ideas on what's wrong with my machine to cause this?
Thanks again for any help.
