Description David Balažic 2002-03-23 08:36:37 EST
Description of Problem:

The boot floppy created during GUI install does not have the "hdc=ide-scsi" 
part of the kernel command line. The LILO boot would have it, as hdc is an 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Hampton beta2

How Reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot CD into GUI install
2. select no boot loader
3. when asked , make a boot floppy

Actual Results:

The boot floppy lacks the "hdc=ide-scsi" part in the kernel command line

Expected Results:

"hdc=ide-scsi" is part of the kernel command line
