This is not s 4Suite problem.

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2002-04-04 19:17:53 UTC
Is this with the final 7.1 release?  There are quite a few reports of this with
the beta release of 7.1 but I have not seen it since then as it's fixed in the
final release.

Comment 4 David Wing 2002-04-04 23:35:44 UTC
Distribution is 7.0 Guinness. Please advise how to proceed.

Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2002-04-04 23:43:29 UTC
A install updates disk is available from


To use it, dd this disk to a floppy, boot a standard boot disk into the install
by typing "linux updates" at the syslinux boot prompt.The install process
will ask you to insert the updates disk when it's needed. Please let us know if
this fixes this problem.

Comment 6 David Wing 2002-04-10 03:29:29 UTC
I'm back. And forget the fix to 7.0. I noted that my distribution was red hat 
7.0. I discovered that I had a distribution 7.1 in the cdroms from the 
book "red hat linux 7.1 bible" by Christopher Negus. So I decided to load that 
instead. I loaded this to my second disk, which appears as /hdc in the disk 
druid panel. First attempts were unsuccessful due to allowing too little space 
in the /boot and /usr partitions, but expanding them led to a successful 
installation, with one large problem. In order to keep /hda working WINNT, I 
placed the boot in the /boot partition, not in the /hda MBR. I think that was 
the reason that the installation software was unable to create a boot disk. And 
I can't either. I can't load command.com and the other system files, loadlin, 
vmlinuz, and initrd.img all on a 1.44MB floppy. What advice do you have?
