It was the earlier graphic.

It turned out to be some assertion getting thrown in the bit that discovers 
the drive geometry before partitioning.  I managed to muddle through the 
text mode install, telling it to ignore the assertions as they came up.  The 
remainder of the install took 5 hours, and it didn't set up the operator 
user properly, but everything else was just fine.  It was easy enough to 

On top of that, my new "quickstep" driver module works beautifully, and can 
deliver 30000 steps/s to all axes simultaneously.  It'll be in your mailbox 

All in all, I couldn't be happier with my new EMC-based setup!  It's miles 
better than the *ahem* DOS based program that I was using before (it was the 
only thing that could run the steppers fast enough OOtB). I took your advice 
and used xfce, which works just fine, and it wasn't hard to figure out how 
to add the launcher for EMC in the task panel.
