Description thalakan 1999-03-28 04:22:00 UTC
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 21:10:59 UTC
Does IIS support passive transfers?

Comment 3 thalakan 1999-04-17 22:14:59 UTC
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.
