So, once you know what the error message means it seems obvious, but it 
wasn't obvious to me!

Actually in my case that would be desirable since I would prefer to 
install from the disk than run up usage on my limited Wildblue satellite 
service.  However I think of PUP as an update application and updates 
don't come via CD/DVD.  It would work if I left something off the 
original install that is on the disk ...

Thanks to all.
