I tend to disagree with "you are using an installer (6.1)" since I have
downloaded the boot disk from the url
ftp://ftp2.seul.org/independence/Indy-6.0-0.8/images/boot.img .
I could be wrong though.

I will try the solution provided by R.G. Mayhue
"edit the /usr/Indy/base/comps file. At the very top of the
file there will be a number, change the number to 0.1 and restart the
and get back to you.

After I am done installing can we do a page explaining to the absolute newbie
how to do it on their own? Maybe I can do this?

Hey Jean what do you think?

This way Indy can be installed by anyone anywhere without any assistance.
Just download the files print the instructions and follow them to the end
to end up with Indy on your machine. But we need to find an easier way to
do this than what I have done so far. Remember I am using two computers,
I have a CD burner I have extra Hard Disks and other distributions.
