Description Tim Waugh 2003-01-12 18:23:56 UTC
Description of problem:
When loading, for example, a CD-ROM driver disk, a signed/unsigned mistake in
anaconda prevents the driver choice being offered to the user.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Phoebe, current rawhide.  I think this problem existed in Psyche too.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Driver disk that demonstrates the problem available on request.

This bug has nothing whatsoever to do with bug 58481.  The driver disk in
question here is *for* a CD-ROM drive, not from it.

I'm going through Bugzilla closing some bugs that have been marked as Modified
for some period of time.  I believe that most of these issues have been fixed,
so I'm resolving these bugs as Rawhide.  If the bug you are seeing still exists,
please reopen this report and mark it as Reopened.
