Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 4563
DOS-mode AutoBoot doesn't work
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:51 EDT
On systems without CD-boot facilities, trying to install
by booting into DOS and running autoboot.bat doesn't work.
This is because the path for initrd.img is invalid.
By experiment, I discovered that the following alternative
contents for this file work as required:
Q> loadlin autoboot/vmlinuz initrd=autoboot/initrd.img
this is fixed in the latest Raw Hide install image...

There appears to be a problem with installing RH 6.0 from
CD-ROM on a system where DOS is present, as the instructions
to do D: then CD \DOSUTILS then AUTOBOOT fails at the final
step with reports of a missing file.
