OK, I will try this next.

I tried a 'standard' 5.2 install. I booted from 5.2 CD 1of6 and at the
linux askmethod (my plan was to select http to access my 5.2 local repo).
The 5.2 kernel was loaded off the CD and promptly got a Kernel Panic.
Thus if were to try and mix 5.1 with 5.2, I HAVE to start the install
with the 5.1 10f6 CD. Then I either point to the 5.2 local repo URL or
point to the 5.1 local repo URL and then supply the 5.2 repo as 'extra'.
I suspect the former will fail as it will install the 5.2 kernel and
that gets the Kernel Panic...
sniff. I REALLY need to get these DecTOPs up and working I committed to
a demo of SIP over HIP at the IETF the end of July....
