Description Bruce Lowekamp 2002-08-19 14:54:55 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020605

Description of problem:
In the "Installing from a hard drive" section of rhl-ig-x86(EN)-7.3-HTML-RHI

When the hard-disk based installation went from directory-of-rpm-files to ISO
images, the comment about removing the RedHat directory from the path to the
install files was retained although no longer relevant.

Enter the device name of the partition containing the Red Hat ISO images. There
is also a field labeled Directory holding images. If the ISO images are not in
the root directory of that partition, enter the path to the ISO images (for
example, if the ISO images are in /test/new/RedHat, you would enter /test/new).

The parenthetical comment should be (for example, if the ISO images are in
/test/new, you would enter /test/new)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
mistake in instructions

Additional info:

Might be better to have a comment about what "root directory of that partition
means" instead, (for example, if you have a /home partition and put the ISO
images in /home/redhat before installing a new version of the operating system,
enter /redhat as the directory of /home to search for the ISOs.)

Thanks! I'll make sure this gets changed when we begin working on our next
release of the documentation.
