Description david 2003-04-14 22:05:20 UTC

Description of problem:
When installing RedHat 9.0 across the network from an FTP or WEB server, the
installer errors out saying: "File /pub/linux/redhat/9.0/RedHat/base/netstg1.img
not found on server.".

This is true, the netstg1.img file is not anywhere on disc1, disc2, or disc3.

This prevents anyone from installing RedHat 9.0 across the network.

1. The file doesn't exist.
2. It is looking in the wrong directory, it should be looking in
disc1/RedHat/base sub-directory instead of Redhat/base sub-directory.

All 3 CD ISOs were md5sum verified to match with the ISOs that RedHat provides.

Install from CD works fine.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert bootdisk.img
2. Boot machine
3. Select FTP or HTTP install
4. Give machine and path to directory containing loop-back mounted ISOs in
disc1, disc2, disc3 subdirectories.
5. See the above mentioned error.

Actual Results:  I see the error I mentioned above in the bug description.

Expected Results:  It should have found any necessary files and continued on
with the

Your boot disk is from an earlier release.  The filename changed in Red Hat
Linux 9 to be netstg2.img
