First, please excuse me sending this to this email site if it is not the
It's the right place.
Second, I am a long-time LaTeX user, but only on Mac OS X. I now am
loading TeXLive2008 onto Ubuntu 8.10 Linux running on a Samsung NC10
Loading off a DVD? Perhaps the physical media is bad. Unfortunately, I
don't have any other ideas. When I do an installation from the original
08 image, the strangely-named "putfile." file does get installed fine.

You mean the file does exist under that exact path?
Off topic, but I also don't see anything in coordsys.dtx which is
causing it to generate "putfile." instead of just "putfile" -- Robin?
(The actual contents look like some sort of pseudo-code?)
