Re: Install-procedure - How to stop?

Hmmm...if you have a DSL connection that requires PPPOE then you might want
to actually add some length to your install procedure to allow it to finish.

What I did was to get the PPPOE software from www.roaringpenguing.com
(IIRC), and separately downloaded the .debs I needed to compile software (In
my case it was trial and error) into the MacOS and then after I did the
initial install, I rebooted, went back into the second part of the install
and after I set my root password, I was able to <command- right arrow> and
go into another console. I logged in as root, then mounted the MacOS
partition with the downloaded .debs and installed those, then I did the
compile of the PPPOE software, and then was able to log in to earthlink and
finish the install. I can't remember the .debs I downloaded right now, but
maybe I can send a list if this is helpful.
