Purchased RH6.0 box set.

Wanted to ftp install RH6.1 from your site.
bootnet.img on box set CDROM did not function properly.

This was using "ftp.redhat.com" and "/pub/redhat/redhat-6.1/i386/".
Got a CWD error (rather than the "No such file") using the infomagic
See also Bug #5483 which appears to be the same problem.
I've had this bug in the instalation of LINUX and some people advised
me to check the RPMS directory for anny files not ending with .RPM
I dis that and foun an log file from my FTP prog. deleted the file
and tryed the install agean, it still did'nt work ( for some other
people this did work !!) Then I compared the files in that dir with
the files on the FTP site and found out that a file called HOWTO-
corean..... something was'nt completly downloaded. I redownloaded
this file and the install worked well !! so check your RPMS dir, it
should be 555.198.893 bytes large, if it is'nt check your RPM files !!
This is caused by a bad download
