Subject: Re: changing/fixing the tarballs in the butch


I wiped out and redid the install 10+ times last weekend, and finally was
just trying to get past this stage, so I didn't write down/keep every
problem log.  I'll go back after I'm fully up and try to get this isolated,
or figure out what I was doing wrong/problems with my box/internet whatever.

thanks again for helping me get past this stage,
