Description hjl 2002-05-21 18:36:40 EDT
I have 7.3 isos on a FireWire drive. But anaconda
doesn't see it. I guess it needs changes in kernel,
kudzu and anaconda to support it. If I make it to work,
will RedHat be interested in my changes?
Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2002-05-22 17:06:17 EDT
Pulling in the ieee1394 support would increase the size of the boot images,
which are already very full.  This is not a feature we plan on supporting.

You can move the files from the firewire drive to an internal drive and do a
hard drive install as a workaround.

How full are the local and pcmcia boot images? It can
always be on the driver disk. I don't have space on
my local hard drive to hold 5 isos.
