When booting with the Red Hat floppy, you can use,
after some menus, virtual console 2 with Alt-F2,
where you have a bash prompt: bash#
Listed in /bin are some programs (not much), amongst
others vi and vim. However, when you call vi or vim,
you get this error:
"vi: error in loading shared libraries: libX11.so.6:
cannot open shared object: No such file or directory"
This is somewhat awkward, as I wanted to edit a file
on the Win98 (vfat) partition, namely a log file of
what I was doing :-)
Note that I was able to mount it:
mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /dos
I also was not able to run 'more' (or 'less') and gpm
at installation time.
My idea was to keep a log of what I was doing and
copy it with gpm, so I would not have to write it on
paper and type it in again, should I need to install
again (which I did :-)

Ooops, #2262 was the wrong bug. Here's the right one.
