It looks like the /RedHat/base directory wasn't properly copied onto your hard
drive image.

I have the same problem. I try to install from the hard disk. Here is the error

I dont see what I could try to fix the problem. Please, if you read this and 
have a clue, help me a little ok?!!

my email: davidmassicotte@videotron.ca

I have a Pentium III 128meg 100mgz 13Gig ;
I made the partition with partition magic (/boot (hda1 : 16meg) ; / (hda5 : 
900meg) ; Swap (hda6 : 133meg) )
 thank you

It appears you did not setup the hard drive image to install from correctly. The
Install Guide has instructions on how to do this.
