Description shreeve 1999-10-22 05:54:08 EDT
Filenames with a colon in them, such as the new updated RHEA
boot images can't be downloaded to windows machines because
of the colon. This is a big problem because many users (like
myself) who are trying to do a clean Linux install will
start by downloading the files from Windows and then created
the bootdisks, etc. I can work around this problem, but I
assume that many other users will not be able to figure out
why these files can't be downloaded.

Please change the filenames as follows:


Replacing the colon with a dash will solve this problem...

Reassigned to someone in the QA dept to handle further.

There are now symlinks in place which you can
download instead.
