I cannot do non-anonymous ftp installions with the boot image:

After I set ftp hostname and directory I see a error window with:

Unable to retrieve the stage ramdisk.

and then a [OK] button which after "clicked" is in an
endless loop with the same above error message.

Anonymous ftp and NFS work fine...

the correct component is the installer
Comment 2 Jay Turner 2000-02-09 08:55:59 EST
Non-anonymous FTP installations are not supported in the 6.1 installation.  We
only support anonymous installations at this point.
Comment 3 mhog 2000-02-09 14:44:59 EST
This is a BUG since redhat or other unix server
do not be default run an anonymous ftp server.

Please restore this VALUABLE feature!!
