here's the first report:


- Windows Vista Buissenes
- Ubuntu 6.06 LTS as fileserver
- mapping U:\ to /usr/local/
- installing into U:\texlive

file-rights are set properly on the server-share (testet)

First of all my plan to install both binaries failed, because win32 is
checked and the boxes are greyed-out
(you my look at the screenshot:

The installation is very slow. And I mean very very ...

I startet at 14:14 and it is not yet finished :-(

any ideas?

hope installation will finsih until tomorrow ...
