2. Start system installation using RH floppy imagies

WHat sort of system? Is this a particular AS2.1 update, or the gold release?
Comment 3 Pawel Zal 2006-06-29 03:38:33 EDT
It is AS2.1 Update 6
Comment 4 Pawel Zal 2006-06-30 01:52:03 EDT
It appears, that the whole problem was a hardware issue. IBM staff replaced the 
backbone board of the blade center and now installation runs fine.
