What is this 'bcm5820' referred to?  I don't think we shipped it Red Hat Linux 7.3.

Comment 4 Scott Kaplan 2002-08-03 11:22:49 EDT
That was it.  There were actually several packages called for in ks.cfg that 
weren't on the CD.  It may be because this was a kickstart from RH7.2

Two suggestions:
1) A clearer error message.  Maybe just putting the missing package name at the 
top?  Bonus points for an error message like: "package 'foo' not found"

2) Could you find all the non-existant packages at once?  I had 8 packages that 
had moved.  It took a lot of reboots to find them all one at a time.

Thanks for the help!
