Description Miloslav Trmac 2002-09-14 12:12:04 EDT
This is probably isolinux problem.

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot the (null) cd 1
2. press F6 at the isolinux screen (I know it isn't supposed to do anything
-- let's say you've heard about the easter egg and are looking for it)
3. press Enter
4. press Enter again

Actual Results:
after 3.: error message: Could not find kernel image: vmlinuz
after 4.: installer starts booting normally

Expected Results:
after 3.: installer starts booting normally

Same in 8.0

Seems fixed in Red Hat Linux release 8.0.92 (Phoebe)
