Description hchcheng 1999-10-09 03:21:34 UTC
From Inst(EN)-3.0-HTML-RHI (09/99), beginning of Chapter 4,
under the heading "Beginning the Installation", it says:

"If you are planning to install via CD-ROM using the new
graphical interface, please read on.

If you are planning to do a text mode installation, type
text at the boot: prompt and refer to the Official Red Hat
Linux Reference Guide."

It should clearly state that the GUI installer only works
when you install from a CD-ROM, and not from other sources
(at least it doesn't seem to work for me on harddrive

The GUI install worked for me off the hard drive.

Comment 1 hchcheng 1999-10-21 16:59:59 UTC
GUI install "works" for me on CD-ROM (the installer started up but
crashes due to some other reason), but not when I do it from hard
drive.  I just thought that this was the same for everyone, but maybe

The documentation has been updated in 6.2 to indicate that the GUI install works
for CDROM & NFS installs ... thanks for your report!
