From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.0.0-10)
Description of problem:
The install process can fail when installing from the hard drive and several versions are present.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put the valhalla iso's and the SkipJack iso's in the same dir.
2. mount valhalla disc 1
3. Create an install floppy for valhalla
4. Boot from floppy and select install from harddrive
Actual Results: Installation can not proceed due to stage 2 error.
I believe the valhalla install disk saw the Skipjack iso's first and couldn't continue.
Showing a screen with the iso's and allowing the user to select which one he/she wanted would allow for renaming the iso's and allow the process to continue.
We do not want to complicate the first stage loader to this degree. You should
put different ISOs in different directories, just as you do not merge the
Skipjack tree with the Valhalla tree.
