Where are you looking for the log files? Setup only puts them in $PWD for
the --help option; during a normal download/install they go in /var/log.
Umm, and what's "-I /home/user"? Did you misread the help text where it
mentions "-l" (lower-case L) and are trying to set the local package dir?
(Also, use a win32 path if that is the case.)
