Thanks Seann:

 I had problems with the 6.2.1 install. Namely it stopped with these
I get the following error messages after typing "installer"

grep: invalid option -- q
grep: stack overflow
Starting Installer. Reading /etc/pfi.conf ...
grep: Invalid option -- 'w'
grep: stack overflow
grep: invalid option -- 'q'

Welcome to DragonFly!

So it looks like the installer for 6.2.1 has a bug. The installer
for 6.0 worked perfectly. 

Kind regards,
