well, my recollection is that there are always many discussions on
installation. there was recently a large thread on exactly what is ON the
mini CD, but there are so many permutations on installation.....
anyway, Troy Settle gave me what I wanted, which i posted
to group also. maybe some other poor newcomer will be helped.
i'm not stupid but i've been trying to get a handle on both the
general installation philosophy AND the confiration management
since January sometime.
it is very difficult.
