Master node install stops during "performing post install configuration"

uhhhh... Not sure if this is the cause, but should I have the slave
nodes already attached to the network.  Just looking in the docs, I see
that during install it will write to the floppy disks of each slave
node. Could this be the cause, because i do not have any slave nodes
attached yet?
