Expected Results:  script completion and a redhat installed.

Additional info:

I downloaded from ftp.dulug.duke.edu the image of the first CD for version 7.2  
I placed the directory structure as indicated in the README onto an FTP server 
to do the install.  This consisted of the root of the CD, RedHat, RPMS and base 
directories.  No files from the second CD were downloaded.

Just checked... no /sbin/depmod in the started filesystem.  What's up? 

Comment 2 Phil Knirsch 2003-05-28 04:50:06 EDT
Has been fixed for the next upcoming release.

Read ya, Phil
