Description of problem:
During GUI upgrade when you get to "Installing packages" section, i have a
problem with disk #2 so it cannot find an rpm package.  It generates an error
message in a pop-up that states, "The file [rpm package path] cannot be opened.
 This is due to a missing file, a bad package, or bad media.  Press <return> to
try again".  But since I do not have a good disk, I will never get it to find a
good package.  There is not "Cancel" or "Exit" button on this message and since
the popup is active i cannot use the back button of the installer.  Whenever i
press return or any other buttons it tries to find the package and opens the
popup again.  The only way to exit that i see would be to shutdown and that
would probably do something really bad to my current installation since this is
an upgrade.

I've made some changes in the current code so that the CD is unmounted to allow
ejecting it and switching the CD.  Cancel or Exit have very little meaning other
than the same thing as hitting ctrl-alt-backspace or ctrl-alt-delete to reboot
the machine.

Mass-closing lots of old bugs which are in MODIFIED (and thus presumed to be
fixed).  If any of these are still a problem, please reopen or file a new bug
against the release which they're occurring in so they can be properly tracked.
