Description of problem:
I just tried (twice to be sure) booting the Red Hat Rescue CD
on a bootable scsi cdrom drive
The cdrom is detected (by BIOS) as a bootable cdrom, and it boots.
after standard boot ascii scrolling screen I get the 1st dialog screen is the
keyboard selection screen. I select my keyboard (us ascii), and press ok.
I then get an error screen
The Red Hat Linux Rescue CD was not
found in any of your cdrom drives.
Please insert the Red Hat Linux
Rescue CD and press OK to retry
using controll alt F3, I see messages:
* trying to mount device scd0
* trying to mount device scd1
and if I press OK, I see these messages repeated (once for each attempt).
unfortunately there is not a shell available, so I am unable to diagnose further.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. bootable cdrom must be scsi
2. boot Red Hat Rescue cdrom
3. select keybopard and press ok
Actual Results: can't find the booted cdrom
Expected Results: normal rescue operation
exact same behaviour with the enigma system survival cdrom (which I only just
tried aftyer trying the Valhalla rescue cdrom. :(
Is this a problem with Red Hat Linux 8.0?
Yes. Problem still exists in Red Hat 8.0 rescue cd.
This should be fixed with the change to how the rescue CD is done in Red Hat
