Because I have no cd, wasn't currently dialed in, and don't have a local
mirror :-)  I put the settings that would work when I do dialin.  (The
phone is currently tied up with this, and it didn't even offer to setup
ppp when I configured the network card.)

Very odd.  It will also take a while to replicate (spending 10 minutes
feeding floppies, another 10 answering questions, and watching it think or
reboot for another 10, for a "switching to runlevel 6" message that lasts
a few seconds).
