Trying to install RH5.2 via FTP. I dloaded entire
i386 distribution and want install via ftp.
Install works great untill I start the FTP install it aborts
after saying that "Comps file is not version 0.1 as expected"

Geez can't it compensate?!?!?!?

Note: d/loaded distribution on 1/9/99 from

5.1 boot disks can't install 5.2.

Possible an old boot.img and supp.img. Get a copy of the new ones from
our errata page and reopen if this still occurs.
