Description of problem:
I've got a laptop, which uses a wireless network card to connect to my lan.  I
have no clue which images I should copy onto a floppy though.  I'm assuming
pcmcia.img, but then do I want drvnet.img?  pcmciadd.img?  What if I want to try
to do a network install with my wireless lan card?  Do I want bootnet.img then?

Please include a list of which drivers are in each image, or ideally give a
better description of which images I should make into floppies based on my

Well, the short answer to your question is that I don't think wireless installs
are supported.
Comment 2 Idcmp 2002-07-22 11:37:42 EDT
Nope.  I found the PXE vmlinuz/initrd-everything.img, copied them to /boot and 
put them into my system's grub.conf, rebooted and did a Hard Drive install.

This install did find my wireless card, but since there's no iwconfig, I 
couldn't set the channel/key up.

Anaconda-images is for the graphical data for anaconda.

Comment 4 Idcmp 2002-07-31 16:13:29 EDT
Ah, sorry..  Thought it meant disk images. :-)
Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2002-08-21 17:50:42 EDT
Deferring -- doing this in a way which also includes some descriptions will
require a bit more changes to the build scripts than we want right now.

We've improved the README somewhat.
