Here's the full body of the saved file:

What am I doing wrong?  Is there a component I shouldn't install or is it just my version that's been corrupted?

hi sid!

This problem occurs when performing a partitionless install that requires at
least one package from the 2nd cd ... we are working to find a fix for it ...
thanks for your report! :)
