messages produced during the installation. In the event of problems,
these logs will assist us in our trouble-shooting efforts.

reference data tables, and scripts which may be used to reload
them onto your copy of STORET in the event of problems. The third, named "Install",
consists of scripts which are created and/or modified during the installation
