If you're bored & have lots of time to kill, you could try to navigate 
Cisco's (probably not Jakob-Nielsen-approved) website.

BTW, another thing to know about this s/ware is that the first time its 
run it it will compile some new files in the installer-directory. They 
were not replaced when I needed to run the installer again to match a 
new kernel. In future I'll simply nuke the entire directory & untar the 
distribution file again.
