unable to install developer tools

I tried to install the Public Beta Tools CD (October 2000) on a G3 Public beta MacOSX system after downloading it from ADC but it hung.

Here are the steps I followed :
- expand the file with stuffit, which created a Developper.pkg file
- launch Developer.pkg and go through all steps (Introduction, License, Select destination, Installation type, then Installing)

The installing step shows the following error :
"Couldn't write bom to path
Please try installing again"
When I look in the log file it says
"[NSUnixTree initWithPath:] failed to read bom from path
/Users/phil/Library/Desktop/Developer.pkg/Developer.bom"
I checked the file and the path is correct, so what's wrong ?

When I click "go back" and try to install again it hangs saying "Preparing Developer Software".

Any help appreciated...

- expand the file with stuffit, which created a Developper.pkg file
that's what you did wrong. re-expand the file with openup or download the newest version of stuffit & all should be well
