Traceback (innermost last):

    from text import InstallInterface
  File "/tmp/updates/", line 16 in ?
    from file textw.constants import *

line 1
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

This is using the following install diskettes:

The machine is a AST Ascentia 810N laptop
w/20MB memory and OnTrack DDO V9.46

This machine ran RedHat 6.0 with a nfs image install.
