kickstart file used during installation
I tried to make a CD set without the anaconda updates from update-disk-
20020117.img in /RHupdates on CD1 - then the installation runs without
problems. It seems like the anaconda installer crash at the dhcpcd package with
the update could be related to the fact, that CD2 needs to be inserted at this
point. Without the files from the update image I'm asked to insert CD2 - and
the installation finishes without problems.
That's because the instructions you're following are wrong. You can't do that
for a CD-ROM install and expect things to work properly because files on the CD
are open. If you're using the updated boot disks released for 7.2, you should
be able to place the update disk as RedHat/base/updates.img on CD1 and have
things work as you expect.
