This normally happens when the path to the install tree is incorrectly
What is the directory structure of the install image on the NFS server?
Did you make sure to copy both CD's into the install image?
Per feedback from firstname.lastname@example.org, this is not bug, but rather user error.
I had the two iso images burned as single files onto two CDs (cd burner
software didn't recognize iso image). I had the 2nd iso
image loopback mounted and exported from an nfs server. Therefore, some
files could not be found during install.
After "unpacking" both iso images into a common directory, the installation
proceeded without problems.
Thanks for the quick response.
No problem - this should be covered in the README files, if not let me know so
we can fix our documentation.
