Universal Installer bugfix

Wary testers reported that the Puppy Universal Installer is broken when doing a full hard drive installation. I found that frugal also was broken.

The script is /usr/sbin/puppyinstaller, and I think it was 01micko who recently modified it to work with gtkdialog3 (it previously required gtkdialog2). I tested it at the time and it seemed ok, but now gtkdialog3 is choking on the the XML being fed to it by stdin -- however, gtkdialog4 works.

So, I have bumped the script to use gtkdialog4, plus fixed some other minor things.

Well, the latest Wary is looking good. I have done some more work on the theme. It seems good enough to be an RC...

Universal Installer bugfix
Guaranteed to make one guy happy! Ta.
Want to have a bash at spurious touchpad issues - not all derivatives, not all the time, and sometimes parameter changes aren't persistent, whether they work or not.

gtkdialog -uni installer
I did make mention that the reason I made my little gtkdialog2 rid campaign was that that the stdin bugfix had been applied. Sorry for confusion.
The bug doesn't affect slacko as I have no gtkdialog3.

I haven't had any full install problem with the
smp or uni versions.
