Description of problem:
I'm new to linux and am running on a pentium overdrive 200 MHZ system with 
windows 98.
I'm using a copy that I got off a disk included with linux 8.0 unleashed. I 
cannot boot from a cd and there is no images included on the disk. So I 
downloaded the boot.img from the 8.0 section on the redhat ftp site. I 
succesfully put this onto a floppy and booted. It asks me how I wish to 
install: graphic or text after I select it loads the files and finds hardware. 
When it looks at the disk though an error pops up saying that the second stage 
of instalation does not match the boot disk. The cd disk says that it is 8.0 
Do I need a different boot.img? 
Does anyone have any suggestions how to get this to install.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot to floppy
2.it happens

I would recommend downloaded Red Hat Linux 9 from an ftp mirror and installing
this.  There is something wrong with the boot.img you are using as it doesn't
match the installation source you are using. The boot.img and the installation
tree both have a stamp in them that has to match. If you download from scratch
from a recognized ftp mirror these images will match.
