Installation Error
Hi. I have been trying ALL day to get gForum set up. Ive tried the windows program and also a manual install.

During the manual install, I get to the point of extracting files, up to

Unarchiving (644) /u/web/ecamty/cgi-local/foro/admin/GT/Mail.pm
Then it stops and wont let me get past this. If you know a way to solve this problem please let me know.
