Uwe, thanks for the reply. However, the host name being longer than 8
characters sounds strange to me ('localhost' is also longer than 8
chars). Anyway, I am giving it a try by replacing my host name with a
shorter one. Do you know whether there is any way to resume the
installation from the point where it has failed (or do I have to remove
& reinstall the various components)?
