Everything went fine until I reached the "Select and Install Software" step from the "installer" ID.  Ran for a long time, then threw up the red box indicating failure, but no hint about what the failure was.  The last thing I gave it was the "Workgroupe" name for the Samba server.  I'm sure there's an Installation Log somewhere that tells me the error, but I have no idea where to look.  I created a "/", "/home", "/usr", and "/var" on some 3390-3.

/var/log/syslog from after the failed installation could already help to
diagnose the failure.

Kind regards,
