Description geir37 2000-08-03 18:50:42 UTC
During the install I choosed custom and selected to install Enlightenment.

About 90 % of the packages gets installed, then the installer asks me to
"Please insert disk 2 to continue." 

However I don't have CD2, so I just press OK.
And CD1 goes back in.
I then get the message: "That's not the correct RedHat CDROM", which I
allready know.

It is not possible to go through and install without Enlightenment or any
other packages that I have selected that might be on CD2, because I will
never get past this point because the installer will keep asking me for
CD2.

Would it be possible to add a cancel button, so it is possible to install
without selected packages that are located on CD2?

I tried installing, and clicked on the "Everything" button.  With that, I had 
to abort the install, becaues it needed CD2.  (I thought I had the second CD, 
but it turned out to be another copy of CD1.)  Without checking "Everything", 
install went fine.  It would be nice to indicate which selections will require 
CD2, and also provide a Cancel button.

We can't cancel; it will break the transaction!

it would be cool if this could be solved by switching to an FTP server to fetch
the rest of the packages, maybe only in expert mode.
