trouble downloading

Hi Ed,

Thanks for telling me about the Aug edition of APC - I'll try and find
it (although I did a quick look last night and most of the places now
have Sep but I'll keep trying).

I did manage to get the downloads down, but now, as I install via the
CDs, the installation routine asks me to insert the next disk, disk 2,
so I insert it and then it says that it is the wrong disk.  I did a
media check on that disk and it reports it as being disk 7!!!!  I only
have 4 CD images so where does disk 7 come from?

How do I get past this point?

BTW - I'm in Canberra.

APC August has it Graham. See if you can grab a copy of that.

Otherwise, where are you? If not too costly I could do you a burn.

I'm close to Perth.
