Perhaps you are not certain of the CD contents. CD1 is for installing
the kernel and shells.  CD2 has applications and utilities called
"ports".  ( Correct me if I am not exactly right!) Remove CD1 after
install and then reboot. Next run sysinstall. Select "Configure -- Do
post-install configuration.. ". Then choose "Packages -- install
pre-packaged". Insert CD2 before you press enter on this menu item.
