You told me to change it?  Oh boy, do I feel stupid now!  I was just
about to email *you* and tell you I dont think the scripts would work
for Xebian 1.1!

Anyways, I changed the compatability line and it started asking me
questions about the timezone.  What isn't obvious, or documented is
the need to continually press return.

Thanks Phill, it seems to be progressing now :P  I will let you all
know how I go.
