The files are listed correctly, i.e. the whole directory structure.  One thing I 
thought of is the first question I'm asked after loading 5.0 from the floppies is if I 
want to load kernal modules from the driver disk.  Do you think that has anything to 
do with it.  Its 3:30 am here, so I'll wait till later this morning to try that, but 
wanted to get some feedback first.
