A pity; I've been only able to get past the initial locale screen once
by luck. I have a second v120 and repeated the experiment with almost
exactly the same results down to the registers (2nd machine has 1gig
of RAM compared to 2gig for the first). Perhaps halting the installer
with a break might get around this?

Emacs vs. Vi flamewars are a pointless waste of time. Nano is the best
