Fixed in future releases. Each VME subarch has its own directory now.

I'll see how that could happen. Ok, the rescue floppy install.sh template
needs m4 postprocessing instead of sed. Was the drivers image OK? 

Just replacing the __whatever__ in there with meaningful things should be
sufficient to fix it (i.e. VERSION=2.0.35-mvme167, Arch=m68k, and

if [ ! install.sh ]; then
        echo 1>&2 "Error: Change directory to the floppy before running this script." 

Can you try this? 
Though I agree the -f would be nicer.

Also fixed in future releases (waiting to be installed).
