Description of problem:
When I am installing additional packages after the initial installation, the
system prompts me for a CD. However, I make it a practice to copy all the

bash-2.05b# redhat-config-packages -t/mnt/cdrom/

This report is filed against a product which is no longer supported. It is very
likely that the problem is resolved in the current version of Fedora Core or
scheduled to be resolved with the new system-config-packages scheduled to land
in Fedora Core 5.
