Yes, 4.10 is what I am using, I just dropped the trailing zero.

Basicly this is my first forray into any nix OS, so I told the install to do a standard installation (recomended) and told it to install everything, I partitioned a 80gb drive as follows:

10gb Partition labeled as / with 5gb as a file system and 5 gb as a swap system

22gb labeled as /usr
22gb labeled as /var
22gb labeled as /hsphere 

When I install from CD I get errors like "Unable to transfer the sinclude distribution from acd0c"

Am I supposed to be swapping in the 2cnd CD when I get those errors?
