Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 4143
Autoboot.bat File Incorrect
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:51 EDT
I reported this bug to a couple of Linux mailing lists and
newsgroups about one week ago and have not seen anything
appear on your site to date.
I purchased from you a copy of RH6 for Intel. After loading
MS-DOS on the target machine and the drivers for the CD-
ROM, I tried, per your instruction manual, to start the
install using autoboot.bat. This method failed because the
file autoboot.bat points to a file in the /misc dir that
does not exist. It appears to me that you split the *.img
file into a network version (*-n.img) and a local version
(*-l.img). I was able to make the appropriate substition at
the command line to start my install and all went well
However, this should be posted prominently on your errata
site as users new to RH Linux (that is the idea, right?)
might get the wrong idea about your great product. I
searched the newsgroups and lists and found that most
people are still not aware that this problem exists (based
on their answers to questions from newbies like myself).
By the way, do I get any recognition (read bug award) for
finding this? Just curious. ;-}
already fixed in the latest RawHide install image.
