If you've been following along, "bug" wasn't what I called it.  My 
descriptions tend toward being filmed in technicolor. :)

To avoid confusion in the future should the first install option from the 
postcard sized screen be removed?  Yes.  Remove that whole screen and 
pause, just go ahead and bring the system up fully from the optical media, 
then use the icon on that fully (thats debatable) booted screen

There, I fixed it for you, Pete. ;-)

Cheers, Gene

If you don't have time to do it right, where are you going to find the time
to do it over?
