No sir I do not. I had the original DVD and then the updated one(s) to use
as my source(s). But it is a thought. I was thinking that perhaps bash
sees:   Name of DVD     as three words and stops with with the first word
and that  "Name of DVD"    would be seen as one word. Like a $STRING.

BTW While you are at it the actual packages are 'in' the Packages folder
on the DVD. I put that as my mount point by using  cd /Packages   so that
was where the computer 'was' when first jigdo looked. That seemed like a
reasonable thing to do at the time.
