On Win98, setup concludes rather badly.

In previous incarnations, setup would launch a DOS window.  Quite often 
that would freeze my machine, reasons unclear.  However, it was possible 
to murder "winoldap" using the three-finger-salute and that would return 
me to normal functioning - usually displaying the "Installation 
Complete" message.

Now, however, a window is launched (doesn't look like DOS, but maybe) 
that immediately freezes the machine.  Murdering "winoldap" just leaves 
it frozen.  I also murdered a "cs2?????" task that was [not responding] 
- still frozen but now Ctl-Alt-Del is not sensed.  I wound up cycling 
the power.
