Using the copy of the installer on your website seems to not work 100% 
either... it insists on formatting my first DASD (0120), and when that 
is done, asks me to format the DASD again.  Saying "No" or "Go Back" in 
response to the dialog doesn't send me anywhere else, it just keeps 
asking me if I want to format the DASD.

Any ideas?
