The streaming instabilities of a finite beam of charged particles passing through a zero-temperature plasma are studied. It is shown that there are no eigenmodes associated with the instabilities. Nevertheless, by constructing wave-packet disturbances one is led to instabilities similar to those for a beam of infinite extent.
