After having struggled for over a day installing the 1.6 ISO to my
system I was successful. Here is what happened,
I would get to the part where the distribution sets would be unpacked
and would get a segmentation fault when the 'games' set was beginning
to be unpacked. This was reproducible.
The MD5 cksum for the ISO checked out.
I used the ISO to install a full installation on another system.
I swapped CD-ROM drives in the trouble system, and the same problem
I swapped out RAM and the same problem happened.
I was finally able to install the full installation by installing the
kernel, base, and etc. sets. I then installed additional sets.
Everything seems fine. I'm stumped as to what the problem was, if
anyone has any suggestions, I'd like to hear them.
Great system, especially the in-kernel PPPoE support.
