Melodie, I use a mirror in Japan (Located in the Philippines here). Seldom a problem. Mirror is jaist something.
I also can tell you about the memory: No problems there.
It really comes down to that single lacking file /etc/sysconfig/system is my best guess.
How it happened?
Hahahahaha ... never mind, coffee, cookies, peace, what else do I need aside of bacon in the morning!
