The 18e version of cmucl does not come with alternative images, it
includes the (only) startup image in the main package. You do not need
to install the -normal, -safe or -small packages. 

BTW, I'm almost finished with a complete rework of the CM/CLM/CMN world.
I will no longer use images but load precompiled modules on startup.
Takes a bit longer but seems to work around the problems that clm had
sometimes when starting from stored images. 

It will also include a recent cvs snapshot of cmucl (2003-12) which is
also needed by Open Music (which I will release as soon as I get the
CM/CLM/CMN world out). I was releasing on Friday when I noticed a
problem with upgrades from previous versions.
