Comment 1 Jay Turner 2000-02-23 10:59:59 EST
This is the result from having files in the /RedHat/RPMS directory which are not
actually RPM files.  The easiest way to find these is to run the command "ls |
grep -v rpm" in the /RedHat/RPMS directory and deleting anything that comes up.
The new beta installer is much better about ignoring files in this directory
which are not actually RPM files.
