	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.
