Do you have a SB Live? There is a bug where it will default to the Au

I had to compile mine (HCF) because there aren't any precompiled ones yet.

Worked great for me unlike previous versions.

The uni computers only do UDF formatted CD-RWs so I spend about six boring hours (no solitare!!!), formatting, splitting (only 570MB per CD), burning, reading, combining, checksuming and burning the images. Made the actual install seem quite short.

I could probably run a copy off if someone asked nicely.

Well if anybody wants to send me a copy, I'll happily send some CDs in exchange :)
