Ok, I know now that script was (is?) broken. How can the installed system
be repaired? What is needed?

I mean, is it a single rpm that is affected? It could be replaced from
other source. If it is an rpm with a bad signature, it is a question of
reinstalling a good one, and done.

Is it and index file, pointing to the dvd something? It can then be
replaced by another pointing to the CDs.

Can I now tell the system to use the CD as install source instead of the
DVD? Perhaps deletting or reinstalling whatever file or rpm was broken
would work, no?

But I have no idea at all what files to replace.

The thing is, although I consider myself an expert, I know very little
about this version. I can not solve this on my own.
