I tried to do a hard drive install, and ended up burning CDs anyway.
Although one is supposed to be able to put the .iso's on a FAT32 volume,
the installer seems only to allow paths starting with, umm, some unix path
like /foo/bar/, as anything I typed had that path prefixed to it in the
error message, so it seems to be impossible to refer to my C: drive.
