We really don't need all that checking stuff.  Just show us the error 
and what you did as above.

First, I'd look into the clock setting to make sure it is correct.  Then 
delete the untarred file tree and start over.  Also try to clean up any 
gdm files that may have been installed as specified in the gdm contents 
section of the book.
