That would be fine, but there are many packages on the second cd(over one 
hundred) and I am not sue which ones were going to be installed.  I tried 
to run the installer for the second cd and it tells me that there is no 
/usr/java/bin/java.  Actually, there is no /usr/java.  The problem is not 
being able to read the cd.  The problem seems to be that some of the 
software was not installed from the first disc, ie. java.
