However, before running over there with a loosely defined problem,
see if you can repeat the error on another system with a clear set of steps.

I have installed FC1 CD's on 3 systems so far and haven't seen these 
It's not that I doubt that you did see them, its just that I expect it 
to be a rare occurance
that must involve special circumstances.  If you could document how to 
re-create the
situation it would help to resolve it.
