Description of problem:
I boot the PCMCIA install floppy and do an FTP install but it doesn't use the 
netstg1.img file properly (or the file is incorrect).

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Boot from install floppy (written 
using /pub/redhat/linux/beta/null/en/os/images/pcmcia.img
2.  Switch to driver disk when prompted.
3.  Specify FTP install
4.  Use server ftp.redhat.com
5.  Use directory /pub/redhat/linux/beta/null/en/os
6.  Installation will fail with "failed to read /modules/module-info"

Additional info:

Screen 3 indicates the following:

img to a fd
dates.img to a fd
img to a fd
copied 8073216 bytes to (null)
mntloop loop0 on /mnt/runtime as /tmp/ramfs/netstg1.img fd is 16
got url ftp://ftp.redhat.com//pub/redhat/linux/beta/null/en/os/i386
getting ready to spawn shell now

Screen 4 has the following:

Unable to identify CD-ROM format.
VFS: Can't find ext2 filesystem on dev loop(7,0).

Dupe of another (don't remember the id off hand).  Already fixed in our current
internal trees

OK but in the mean time is there some way I can perform a network install?
