Development does not have access to support's tracking mechanisms -- could you
please provide the details of your problem?

I could not get the upgrade feature of the installation to work.  I then tried 
a full install.  I was getting "Probing for monitor type  Unable to probe".  I 
have since guessed at the monitor type and got lucky.  I now have 8.0 
installed.  However, I have not been able to locate the file manager.  During 
the previous tries to load 8.0 I got a message stating that the system could 
not find the modules.dep file and I could not access the floppy, zip, or 

Is there suppose to be a file manager somewhere??

I now know what the file manager looks like.
