Description thalakan 1999-03-27 23:22:00 EST
The bootnet.img boot disk hangs after loading the
second-stage ramdisk from a Microsoft Internet Information
Server FTP server on NT Server 4.0 / SP4.

Are you sure it is IIS?  I.e. have you tried retrieving the files via
another ftp server, and been successful?
Comment 2 Matt Wilson 1999-04-17 17:10:59 EDT
Does IIS support passive transfers?
Comment 3 thalakan 1999-04-17 18:14:59 EDT
Yes, I'm positive it's IIS, and I'm not sure if it supports passive transfers or not.
It works fine installing off of ftp.redhat.com; I actually think it has something to do with
the way I pulled the files off of ftp.redhat.com.  I got a copy of the 5.9 blue CD, so I'll
try copying that to the ftp server vs. copying it from ftp.redhat.com.
