thanks for this hint, it works for me too.

Please grant me one question with this redirect. Perhaps you can help me:

This redirect requires a path like  "<sf-project-name>/file" in the setup.ini.
I've tried to change the above line into

RedirectMatch install/(.*)$<sf-project-name>/$1

to avoid this preeceding <sf-project-name> but this doesn't work and the apache
online help of mod_alias doesn't gave me enough infos to find the problem. Any
ideas ?
