Description of problem:
'Hard drive installations require a working Linux system installed and
the use of ISO (or CD-ROM) images rather than the entire installation
Hard drive installations only work from ext2 or ext3 file systems.'
I suppose that this statement is not complete. It should be better to
write here something like ' ext2/ext3 or vfat '.
In chapter '4.6. Installing from a Hard Drive' is shown that HD-method
is available also for VFAT partitions.
I think author means that 'dd' command is available in Linux and file
system will be formatted as ext2 or ext3. The case of shared partition
between Linux and other OS is missing here.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open RHEL 3 Installation Guide
2. Look at first paragraph of Chapter 2.7
Thanks for the feedback. VFAT has been added to the list of supported
file systems for hard drive installations.
This change will be reflected in the next release of the installation
