That's what I thought.  Fair enough.

Hmm.  We're using a nightly mirrored copy, but looking at the file's
properties, I see it dates from April 7th, 2003.  So grabbing the
snapshot might be a good idea!

I'm surprised that the latest version on the mirror site is almost 5
months old.
 setup.exe               07-Apr-2003 23:20   253k  
 setup.exe.old           09-Mar-2003 11:08   180k  
 setup.ini               30-Aug-2003 22:50   213k

When was the last version of setup.exe released?
