Description of problem:
I unselected autorun during the installer and needed to install
additional packages I found on the fourth cd. When I got to the last
section of firstboot I put in the fourth cd. I hit the button, and it
gave an error message like "can't find autorun on this cd".

I am not sure if something is missing from the cd, or if autorun is a
dependecy of firstboot that hasn't been set.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora Core 2 Test1 without autorun
2. Boot the system
3. Put the fourth cd in the cdrom drive
4. Click the additional software button in the last section of firstboot

Actual Results:  Error message about autorun

Expected Results:  Some dialogs to install software from the cd.

CD #4 needs an autorun file on it.

Comment 2 Elliot Lee 2004-05-27 17:16:58 UTC
It's fixed in builddistro/splittree.py for future releases.
