installing bash 2.04 and bash 2.03 was a left over from 2.3.5 but should
have been removed in 2.3.5b (it was partially removed. i forgot the link
in chapter 3).

Termcap has been removed from the basic system yes and I've forgotten to
remove that link in chapter 3 as well. Reason for termcap not being
installed anymore: it's being phased out and ncurses should be used
