Description Need Real Name 2000-11-03 04:12:35 UTC
I was trying to upgrade my exisiting system from my hard drive and it died
when it was checking for earlier version.  Here is what was generated.  i
am sending it in because the install asked me too.

Your install tree is corrupt - make sure you copied all the files required to
your hard drive.
