I believe this is caused by the changes that are being made to the 
original RH distribution. I must remind you both that in each case you 
are/were  tring to install Indy before it is completed. I cannot speak 
for Jean, but as I make changes to the distro I do not do a re-install 
using the installer. If Jean does the same thing, I can see how this 
would happen and not be corrected along the way.

I plan on doing a full install of Indy in it's current state, some of 
which is only on my machine, and not included on the ftp site yet. I'm 
not sure how well it will work (thus the test), so I will not upload 
until the current state of flux has settled down some. Maybe during the 
tests I will fix the comps file so it will work, but please don't count 
on it yet. I also need to get my mirroring problem solved.

As far as I know, Jean and I are the only ones currently working on the 
project. Again I can't speak for Jean, but I can assume it's the same 
as for myself. Indy is this "a project I'm working on" no matter how 
much time I WISH to spend on it, I still need to go to my work and make 
a living first. Otherwise there will be NO PROJECT for me. Then there 
is family, but that is another matter (sigh).

I hope we can get the matter straitened out soon so you can get a 
running copy of Indy installed.

Hang in there people!
