OK tried the installation again, and nothings changed.
Still left with the 2 lines listed above.

Guess I'll have to wait until 12-CURRENT becomes a usable version.
I was really hoping to run 12, so I could better develop 11.
Oh well. Guess I'll grab a copy of 11 off one of the ftp servers, and spin it

Thanks anyway! :-)
