Description of problem:
Using the pcmica.img to boot my laptop (has no CDROM) from floppy.
All goes OK until the system does its first ftp transfer, the ftp
server sees the request for /RedHat80/Redhat/base/update.img this
of course does not exist on the server (as its not on the image
on the cdroms.ios image nor the redhat site) the server returns
error and then redhat tries to mount the file (that it didn't
get) which of course fails! The installer then gives up.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot using the floppy with pcmcia.img
2.use the ftp option
3.fill out ftp questions
4.Falls over on first ftp transfer as file doesn't exist
Actual Results: Falls over saying unexpected problem shouldn't happen
Expected Results: Should welcome me to the install (ie down load stage2 I think)
I suspect the pcmica.img should have checked if the file does
not exist use the current versions of the installer?
The redhat install does successfull talk to the server
as the log shows the request for ther file, however the file
does not exist on the cdrom/redhat site/anywhere else.
For me this means I can't install RedHat.
I couldn't find the src for the pcmica.img, for how to make
myown to get round the problem...
I had this work for me with the Phoebe beta.
