Do you have the boxset or did you download the images?

There should have been a piece of documentation in the boxset explaining how to
get the C3 installation to work.
Comment 2 Jerry Geis 2003-05-05 11:51:04 EDT
I do have the boxed set. I will look for the info.
I did not have to do anything different for redhat 8 so
I did not think about having to do something special.
I also had the boxed set for redhat 8.
Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2003-05-13 15:02:15 EDT
Are the CDs based on images from an FTP site?
Comment 4 Jerry Geis 2003-05-13 15:08:43 EDT
The CD's we purchased and sent to me in the mail.
I did not fpt anything.
I have not had the time to download from the ftp site
to try them. THe documentation that was pointed out said it
should work if I download them.
