I had to transfer the installation files from CD to a DOS partition for the 
installation (IDE CD ROM drive).  Everything managed to install correctly 
except XFree86-3.1.  With DOS's (rediculous) 8 char filename limit, the 
installation process only finds the "xfree86_" directory.  I think I can just 
move the directory to my root directory and rename it (/XFree86-3.1).  How do 
I re-invoke the installation screen?  I tried /sbin/sysinstall, but I only get 
the fdisk/disklabel screen.  When I proceed, it just goes back to the shell.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
