Hi Bill

I think he means install instead of download. I wouldn't expect several 
screens during a download but during an install is more likely


"Truth lies within ourselves: it takes no rise from outward things, whatever 
you may believe. There is an inmost center in us all, where truth abides in 
fullness and to Know rather consists in opening out a way whence the 
imprisoned splendor may escape than in effecting entry for light supposed to 
be without."
