I'm not sure if this is the appropriate place to discuss this, but maybe
it's close enough

I have had difficulty instaling Jigsaw 1.0beta.  My first error is when
unziping the archive.  Example:
[F:\download]unzip -t jigsaw.zip > errors.txt
error:  expected central file header signature not found (file #6).
  (please check that you have transferred or created the zipfile in the
  appropriate BINARY mode and that you have compiled UnZip properly)

note:  didn't find end-of-central-dir signature at end of central dir.
  (please check that you have transferred or created the zipfile in the
  appropriate BINARY mode and that you have compiled UnZip properly)

I don't see why I wouldn't have transered it in binaray mode.  If I had
done it in ascii mode, I'd expect to have a lot more errors.  I downloaded
it useing Netscape 2.02e.  I sort of expect it to be intellegent enough to
download zip files as binary.  I certainly haven't had any problems like
this before.

But I sort of ingored that at went on.  

I guess I should say waht system I'm running.  I'm running OS/2 Warp 4.  I
have JDK 1.1.4:

[E:\jigsaw]java -version
JAVA.EXE version "JDK 1.1.4 IBM build o114-19971121"

Okay Step 3 says to execute ``java Install'' in \jigsaw\jigsaw.  But I
get:

[E:\jigsaw\jigsaw]java Install
Can't find class Install or something it requires

Which isn't too suprising because there is no Install.class in that
directory.

[E:\jigsaw\jigsaw]dir

The volume label in drive E is OS2.
The Volume Serial Number is 2719:E815.
Directory of E:\jigsaw\jigsaw

 2-15-98  11:09a     <DIR>           0  .

        5 file(s)          0 bytes used
                    51157504 bytes free

I stopped here because installing the properties is probably a pretty
important step.

I'm not too sure what I should try to do next.
