Replying "no" when asked by cdset for another (in this case 6th) CD.

At the switch-over from scanning by cdset to install software.  
Scan another CD.  Answer "no"
Insert CD1 - hit return (still cdset)
[a couple of things happen.  To quick to record]
Insert CD1 - hit return. (Select and install software)   LOCKUP.
It was only when the drive was freed up was the actual installation able 
to start with a fresh reading of the first CD.
