I am installing from hardrive dowload from ftp site.
Ok - I searched your archives and found similiar failures, but not this exact one which refers to MAKEDEV. But, extrapolating from the other
issues, I assumed my problem might be a bad MAKEDEV image. So, I re-downloaded it IN BINARY mode, from a DIFFERENT mirror. This
did not rectify the problem. Then I tried the updates img floppy. The update image was loaded ok, but I got the same exact failure. What is a
fellow to do?
Is the key needed to be downloaded? If so, could I be missing it & where does it go?

I have received some input from someone that my problem is that I have downloaded the src packages instead of the executable packages.
Be advised that this is not all my fault, although I do take some blame:
your download instructions called for:
Well - ur server is hard to get to, so I went to a mirror. Confirm that your path is incorrect for a mirror site. The actual path is:
or, I assume (?):
where did I get my files?:
Being a total newbie to redhat - I didn't know the difference between SRPMS ans RPMS - I figured maybe SRPMS were a newer convention. Try not to
So, you may want to update you download instructions. I will turn a few screws upstairs for my part.
Sorry for the confusion - I hope everything is working well now.
