George,

We don't sign autobuilds.  Applying digital signatures is something that
we've left as a manual step for security reasons.

The Autobuild on my SP2 XP Pro at Home certainly barks at me for lack of
Digital Signature.  The virgin XP Pro at the office didn't bark with the
Beta, though I have yet activate and run the program in anger.

See message coming about NETINST.

George.
