Re: Upgrading from RedHat 9 to Fedora for homemade install DVDs

You don't have to call your top level RedHat or Fedora, you can call it
what you like as this is now passed in as a parameter to genhdlist +
others (--productpath). Can't remember when this change came in, after
RedHat 8 that's for sure.

I see.

The option does not seem to exist in Red Hat 9 either...

How about the installer itself? Will use information in .discinfo and nothing else when looking for RPMS and "base" files?

I'm migrating my setup for custom OS install DVDs from Red Hat Linux 9 to Fedora Core 1. (The DVDs contain the base distribution, selected components from the official updates, and various additional packages built by me.)

Is there anything special I need to keep in mind when doing this? Any significant changes to the "anaconda-runtime" tools (genhdlist, makestamp.py etc.)? And how about the directory structure? Do I have to call the toplevel directory "Fedora", or will "RedHat" still work?
