We are missing some details...like the version you are trying to
install. Was it V4 or V5. And, if it was V5, were you updating from a
V5 system or a V4 system. If you were updating from a V4 system to a
newer V4 system, are you sure you got the tag right in your
supfile?(I'm guessing from the symptoms that you were going from V4 to
V5, but I can't be sure.)

In any case, it looks like a good time to boot the fixit disk. (This
is the second CD image from the standard distribution.
