No, it's not that my hard drive is full (I have 22 GB spare on the 
current 60BG drive, and can add another 60 GB if I need (though that 
would be another 1lb to have to lug around :-).

It's the unreliability of the download process. I have now tried the 
installation four times, and each time it's stalled during the download 
of a component. Maybe it's just the times I've been trying, but it's 
driving me nuts.
