Description James Ralston 2004-04-02 02:42:23 EST
When installing from DVD (FC2-test2-i386-DVD.iso), if I pass
"linux expert" to the boot prompt, everything seems to work properly
until I get to the "Installation Method" screen.  Then, when I select
"Local CDROM", anaconda immediately complains:

    No driver found

    Unable to find any devices of the type
    needed for this installation type.
    Would you like to manually select your
    driver or use a driver disk?

If I refrain from passing the "expert" flag (meaning, I perform a
regular install), everything proceeds normally.

This isn't a big deal for me, as I don't normally use any of the
features the "expert" mode turns on, but it might matter to others.
