I downloaded the latest beta - and checked the sha1sum before
installing.  It worked perfectly.  I configured eth0 as dhcp, knowing
that I'd have to get the wifi drivers later.  I did the update
immediately after the install - that would be the 3rd April, when I
started this thread.

I've now got those files from /root/drakx onto a usb stick - should I
start the bug report now with those files?
