	Strange things are afoot at the circle K. I grabed sysinst out of 
installation/netboot/diskimage.tgz on (same mirror I 
downloaded the ISO from). Loaded up gdb with the core file and GDB pops up 
with a warning saying it can't find the beginning of the function at 
0x58d80c. Playing with heurestic-fence-post didn't really turn anything 
up. I doubt the linker or assembler screwed up making the binary, but I 
doubt it. Right now I'm guessing that sysinst overwrote enough of 
the stack frame that the core file is useless, unless I'm missing 
something else. Any ideas? My next guess is to run sysinst through gdb on 
a spare disk and see if it does the same thing, hopefully without 
clobbering my existing install in the "process." [pun intended] Maybe that 
way gdb will be able to put two and two together.

	The sysinst binary in the kernel ram disk and the one from 
diskimage.tgz are the same exact binary right?
