Description of problem:
While trying to install beta on laptop using pcmci.img and pcmciadd.img,
installs are impossible over net.  Instead of asking for nfs,ftp or http, it
gives harddrive as only option.

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


How reproducible:
Every single time I try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.dd if=pcmcia.img of=/dev/fd0
2.dd if=pcmciadd.img of=/dev/fd0
3.insert pcmcia.img in floppy drive and reboot
4.start install by pressing return
5.when asking for driver disk, insert the pcmciadd.img
6.choose languag and keyboard

Actual results:
"What type of media contains the packages to be installed?
Hard drive"

Expected results:

HTTP"

Um, there is no pcmcia.img anymore.  What exactly are you installing?
