Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 2227
Installs from local hard disk still fail if RedHat is not in the root directory

Using the Beta4 images, RPMS's and base files, I tried
placing everything from gribble/beta4/i386 in the /RH
dirctory of my DOS/VFAT filesystem (since installing off of
a PCMCIA SCSI device still doesn't work). So at install
time, I specified that I was installing off local disk, I
specified /dev/hda1 as the filesystem (which was my VFAT
filesystem), and /RH as the directory path to the RedHat
programs. This failed, with RedHat saying it couldn't find
the installation directories.
I then moved /RH/RedHat to the top level (i.e., /) of the
VFAT filesystem, and then tried specifying /dev/hda1 and /
as the location for the local repository for RPM files.
This time, it worked. So think there is still something
faulty in the logic around that code, however.
This sounds like it's been fixed in Red Hat 6.0. Please reopen if I'm
