Summary0005474: Gloom install script problem

Only the game menu is launched, then there is a black screen. The same thing happens when installing Gloom Deluxe.

Indeed, nothing is copied from disk 2 during install.
Copying files manually from disk 2 to data dir does make the game run.

I noticed one more bug in the installer.
When I try to install Gloom Deluxe, the same situation happens as I wrote about earlier. But that's not all because the installer does not install Gloom Deluxe but its basic version. The Gloom Deluxe menu should be yellow, not purple.

Install script fixed.

This install supports only classic version of Gloom.
Gloom Deluxe version needs to write complety a new slave (game uses RTG).

@Psygore it's almost okay because install script forgets one file from data_disk - gloomgame. Without it, the game won't start and not everyone can know it.

New install package available, slave 1.4 supports the gloomgame file missing.
Install script will copy this file too.
