Installing Apple X11 from Tiger install disks

Simple thing but I found installing this little puppy a pain in the behind for 5 minutes. On the disks that came with my Macbook, the installer is contained in the package contents on disk 1. I found the installer by typing 'X11' into spotlight and it came up as 'X11user' in the applications section.

Heh. I had a similar experience, but mine was much more convoluted:


I ended up "accidentally" completely reinstalling Tiger, and it still didn't work.

The package is there in the DVD window, but you have to scroll down to get to it, and the only hint that it's there is the fact that the window you're looking at has a scroll bar...
