To All:

I installed 8.0 last year with no trouble at all.  However, this year, I put
it on a new machine (Toshiba laptop A505-S6981 running Windows 7) but I
can't seem to get any of the port packages to install.  This time I used a
DVD ISO image, rather than a CD-ROM as before.  It seems like sysinstall
can't find necessary dependencies, although it does appear to have loaded
the packages (e.g., X11) into the proper directories.  Any idea what is
going on?
