Sorry for the "me too" but...well...me too.  I don't get very far

giving me problems also has a PIV (1.6 GHz) processor.  Could this issue
be specific to Pentium IV's (I know it's a long shot...)?

P-IV's?  Or maybe there is another common thread...?  I started with DP1
and have since been able to update my sources and build/installworld
successfully but only through sheer persistence.  The problem still
