I'm working on another update which may help. How about waiting a day before re-installing? I'll post when update is ready.
a couple more bug report messages, hope they help:
1. Skip Gparted? wow, NOT A GOOD IDEA--the installer FAILED to format the partition, although, the installer software indicated that it would.....How do I know that? Well, unintentionally, I assigned the normal screen resolution (1280 x 1024x32 bit color for Windows 98), oops, that caused a catastrophic failure, "blue screen of death". Then, when I SKIPPED GParted, on starting over, the installation appeared to go smoothly, but, upon rebooting, BOOM, the same blue screen of death appeared, though I had not selected that resolution, which appears to exceed the capabilities of xorg.
2. I found out what was wrong, with the "add user" routine. At the risk of receiving all kinds of hostile rejoinders, this is ANALOGOUS to my "rant" about single click versus multiple clicks.
Why similar: Well, I insist on LOGIC, and others prefer TRADITION. I am disinterested in how things HAVE BEEN DONE, and more interested in doing things in a rational, systematic fashion.
In this case, as with the single click business, I employ a single character for the user name. I can expect HOWLS of disapproval from the many, many forum members who are accustomed to the tedium of having both a letter AND a number included in the user name. This is AGAIN, another ANCIENT tradtion, that harkens back to yesteryear, in the bad old days, I remember all too well, in the 1960's, when we had a computer with a hundred users. ONE computer, with a hundred users. Yes, in that environment, we needed more than a single character user name.
We don't need that today. The "error", or "bug" in this marginal installation software, is the FAILURE of the installer to accept a single character as input. This is a FATAL error, since I will not use, ANY distro, that OBLIGES more than one character..... VL light can conform to my DEMAND, or I can look elsewhere....
