Most of the cases where there have been probs are off the 3D Gamers incremental patch
I re-verified our copy of the file with both the original at EA's distribution ftp and the one on , and they're all identical, so it seems unlikely that the install problem is just with copies of the patch downloaded from 3D Gamers. But if anyone has more information like what server a corrupt patch was downloaded from, I'll look further.

I also notified EA about a (possible) problem with the incremental patch and they're looking into it.
