This may seem nit-picky, but on one of my sytems that I
routinely test stuff on (instead of using a production
machine) will not load the boot disk (not RedHat's fault).
So instead, I install a DOS disk with CDROM support and use

That being said, I picked up RH6.0 from Fry's the other day
(at a VERY high price -- I'm shocked!!!) and attempted to
install it tonight.  My first try at "autoboot" failed
because it could not find the specified image.  I listed
the batch file to see what was being done.  I checked the
directory specified for the file indicated and it wasn't
there.  There were two other files with similar names so I
selected one and manually entered the command line.  The
installation started in a flash.

Someone forgot to update the DOSUTILS directory on the
CD. :)

Okay now that I have pointed out that flaw, do I get a new
copy of the CD when/if it's fixed? :)
