Poor choice of words on my part.  "going to work" is ambiguous.  One 
possibility is that the install won't work, maybe because a directory doesn't 
exist.  But it should be able to create directories so maybe if some 
non-directory already exists where it needs a directory.

What I really meant was won't work after installed.

Good point.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
