    1. Select a directory for install  log , or turn it off (as you so please)
    2. Select "Advanced Install", click next (Finish button will become "next")

If you selected an advanced install you will have a few options:
  1. Directory to install to:
    1. The default is your home directory, but you might want to change this
  2. Installation type:
    1. miniBirch: If you already have a BIRCH system (like on a Solaris NFS), and you want to connect to it instead of making a new one, select this.
    2. Development Version: Only recommended for advanced users, the Development version may be unstable.
    3. Binaries: The installer should have automatically detected your binary type, but if you have a server cluster with multiple architectures, select additional binaries.
