Description Steve Underwood 2001-02-06 21:32:27 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.75 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16-3 i686)

I am using a Sony Vaio Z505GAT with the Sony external CDROM. If I boot from
the fisher disk 1 CD I get to the screen where I select the install media
OK. However, I am then given the options Hard disk, NFS, FTP and HTTP.
There is no install from the CD option presented to me.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from fisher CD
2. Answer questions about keyboard and such, and get to the media selection
3.Sit puzzled at why install from CD is missing

Actual Results:  I can choose install by FTP at the problem point, and
install just fine from an anonymous FTP directory on another machine.

With the Vaio CD-ROM drives, I'm pretty sure had to pass an option to the kernel
with the I/O port of the CD-ROM drive.  Something like 'linux ide2=0x180' at the
syslinux prompt worked with them.  Can you try and see if this lets you access
the CD-ROM drive from the installer?

OK, I should have included that in my original submission. I booted with
	linux ide2=0x180,0x386
which worked OK when installing RH7.0 on the same machine. To test fisher I did
a fresh install, and wiped the whole machine clean.

Assigning to a developer.

We (Red Hat) should really try to resolve this before next release.

This is fixed in CVS.
