Have been trying to install BM37 on a NW65 box but it always returns a fatal error: "A fatal error has occured. This program will terminate. You may check sys:\ni\data\ni.log for more details after you dismiss this dialog. (com.novell.application.install.ProfileException) Tree not initialized yet..

The ni.log has the following fatal error messages:

Cannot find any TID's that seem to address this problem. The server was installed from a sp2 overlay cd. Reinstalled sp2 and NICI. One TID suggested replacing the NI directory from a good 6.5 server but this is the only one. Any help would be appreciated.

thanks
