Description hmike 2000-01-06 23:33:16 EST
After mirroring the i386 directory with the mirror package,
Updating the permissions to everything directory and executable to 755 as
it says to in the Redhat-Cd mini howto,
mkisofs according to the howto (without joliet extensions)
mounted it as a loopback to confirm file system
burned image to cd from a mac with writer
made floppy from CD
booted from floppy
it gets to finishing mounting filesystems (proc and etc) and then reports:
exec failure /sbin/install
then stops the install and reports safe to reboot.

Any idea whats going on here?
I'm going to try another system but I have a feeling maybe I did something
bad during making the CD by changing permissions all willy nilly.

This is definitely a problem with the CDROM.  The easiest thing to do when
making a Red Hat CDROM is to download the ISO image and then work from there.
That assures that the permissions are correct and that nothing else is missing
or wrong.
