	setup200202 has the following remaining key issues:

doesn't detect links for /etc/passwd and /etc/group
overwrites both /etc/passwd and /etc/group if either are missing (or
(new) may have issues on win98SE.
(new) has an unconfirmed issue with local installs.
(new) cannot select source only if a package is not already installed.

I'm going to put a quick fix in for the first 1 or maybe 2 points.
Likewise for the last one. The 3rd I cannot help address - can anyone
here shed some light on it? The fourth likewise - it's unconfirmed. 

Once points 1,(maybe 2) & 5 are addressed, IMO we can release this.
