Hi,
I'm trying to do an install of PPC64 from the minimal CD 2005.0 on a Dual 2ghz powermac, but when I follow the instructions that say to copy stage and distfiles from the CD Rom, they aren't there. I have no problem downloading the stage1 or stage2 files using links2 but when it comes to the distfiles, there are like 19000 files! How do I get the distfiles if they aren't on the CD? Or will the ones I need be downloaded automatically later?

Thanks,
Hish

The minimal CD is minimal because it hasn't got packages and stages :P :P
You have to dowload the packages cd.
