Description of problem:
Am trying to install on an old Dell Latitude Cpi. It runs the stable
release okay (not perfectly, but well enough to use). The test release
only gets as far as Language Selectin, then gives an error: "An error

Don't know if this is of any use to you, but...

Your machine is having difficulty reading your install media.  Since
it's an old laptop, I'd highly recommend burning the media at a much
lower speed and that should help.
