Excellent thanks Steve!
I should be able to fix it from here.
For some reason all my install attempts today are doing this..
Don't know if its due to a kernel update during the install or a down 
resource.
I'll be moving away from ACID and doing my own manual install/build 
soon  but I'm still just getting into this and could sure use that 
crutch if it's there ;-)
