    I had SERIOUS problems with that very same package.  I recommend
you get the Slackware distribution.  It works VERY well.  Installed it
after downloading the ENTIRE 100 MB off the 'net.  Then tinkered with
the XF86Config file, and it worked BEAUTIFULLY.

1. Yggdrasil Fall 1995 release problems

I also

I also, but diferent ones.

After doing a run-time installation I want selectively install some components.
When using the X11 install component screen, I select what I want.
When I press the install button, the system starts installing electric fence (not selected by me)
It takes a very long time, and at the end nothing is installed !
When using the command 'install_component' all goes well until a not to determine moment when
the complete file system is corrupt. (at several installations on different components)
It cannot find /bin/ls etc.
Using fsck after rebooting the install floppy cannot fix the problem(s).
And I can start all over again.
Using install_path, and manually restoring symbolic links, I can finally install components.

The same system worked without problems with the fall 93 release and the fall 94
release (after reading the errata)
