After breaking out and modifing all the install scripts to do
echo's after almost every step, the problem seems to be in their
user interface (ui).

My system is a 33Mhz NIC system (micronics knock off)
with 8MB ram 32K cache, pheonix bios,
a micropolis 1588 & cdc wren 7 on an adaptec
1542 controler and a monochrome display adapter. I have tried
different diaplay adapters up thru VGA with no help (Interactive
said it _had_ to be a bad display adapter). I installed these
same disk as a test on another machine without problems to
remove any doubt as to the integrety of the disk's.
Just give me the old fashion install scripts without pick lists and
all the fancy stuff and I sure it would install.
