Description Need Real Name 2001-01-27 06:05:28 UTC
I used the anaconda update and still can not get RedHat to install?  I 
originally was having a problem with Windows changing the 
RedHat\base\comps file to a text document.  I removed the .txt extension 
from that folder so that now is is just a file, with no extension.  Am I 
supposed to be able to download the comps file, if so how do I do so?  
Whenever I click on that file it just opens it up like a text document, so 
I used the Save target as... option to save it to my hard drive.  Is this 
the problem?  If so, how do I fix it?  I attached the error I keep 
receiving to the bottom of this message.  

Thanks alot, Shawn Jacobson

You are missing files from the hard drive image you are installing from.
