Very strange - although it is the last file on the cd ...

It may be due to the size of the cd image which is a little over 
700,000,000 bytes  - the final build will be limited to 650 MB = 
6,815,744,000 bytes 

But it is odd that you can read it - ...

Can you do the install without the devel stuff and then see if you can 
install that rpm ???

I dont think it is a packaging problem because I have done 'everything' 
installs from that set of isos.
