This is caused by a bug in the installation procedure: hostname.le0
will be created on the first disk it is allowed, only when it's created
in /tmp/... it will be copied to the new disk. The install program
will first try to create it on teh CD, which fails, *unless* it's
on disk and it's exported R/W w/ root access.

We export w/o root access. The latter requires chmod -R <installtree> a+rX.
