   Correction:  This happened after configuring the modules.  It then said
that base was configured, though in actuality base had *never been
installed*.  So perhaps /etc/hostname was packed with the other disk that
it asked for.  (I don't remember whether that was the rescue disk or the
drivers disk; it only asked for one of them, though.)
