At 4:00 (3.5 hours later) I was asked for disc 3 and the estimated time
remaining was down to a "reasonable" 3,235 minutes.  At 4:15 I got an
error saying it could not read
xorg-x11-fonts-ISO8859-15-100dpi-7.0-3.noarch.rpm and I get one option -
[Reboot].  No choice to skip that package or to replace the CD and try
again.  Just reboot.  Sweet.
