I agree, and if Harry had criticised the CDs then I would have refuted that. 
But, looking at Harry's problems, none of them were caused by the 
installation CD which (by luck more than anything) appeared to work

unreleased CDs.

Had he attempted to instal stable and then upgrade, what would have happened
