Description Hermann Schichl 1999-10-05 20:04:11 EDT
The new RedHat 6.1 bootnet.img installer
does not support FTP network installation
if PCMCIA support is needed. Instead of
asking for the pcmcia.img it asks for a
network card driver.
This makes it virtually impossible to
install RedHat 6.1 on a notebook.

I should have noticed that PCMCIA installation
has to be done with pcmcia.img. I just overlooked
the fact while browsing through the README file.

However, since I know of four different people
who made the same mistake, I would suggest to
change the name of the pcmcia.img to something
like btpcmcia.img or bootpcmc.img, since it is
somewhat misleading, when a file with the same name
as in the 6.0 release has a completely different
