Please try with the update disk mentioned in the release announcement at
ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/beta/fisher/en/updates/images/fisher-upddsk1.img
 booting with the original cd or floppy and typing 'linux updates' at the
syslinux prompt.  More information on making this disk can be found in the
README in that directory.
