Description Mike A. Harris 2001-02-10 06:26:41 EST
When doing a hard disk install (text), It asks for the partition
where the ISO's are to be found.  I chose /dev/hda12, and then
it needs the path to the files.  I put "/fisher" since the files
were in that partition under "fisher".  I tried some more but it
kept failing so I rebooted to try again, while talking to msf on
the phone.

This time I missed putting the "/" at the front and it worked fine.

The code should be modified to strip leading "/" chars.  Also, due
to another bug in the install I had to start over (already bugzillad)
and this time I typed in the "fisher" part first, and then tabbed to
the top to pick the partition.  The installer would not let me install.
It seems you _must_ choose the partition first, then the path, if you
do it the other way it doesn't work.

Seems to work for me now.
