You did not use Software CD 1/2, you used the installation CD

You can actually throw away the install CD, its only a marketing product that will show some nice-looking browser-style-windows instead of classic windows and slows down the installation...

use Software CD 1/2 and the setup_install_server script (not the modify_install_server script)
