As I think I now understand, I need to copy the iso file to the hard
drive (or usb drive)? Is that correct? When I had just copied the files
from the DVD install disk I burned, when I was prompted for a device I
would put /dev/hda1 and then for a directory I would put the directory
info but it always said something like that it could not find the
directory and it would append "/tmp/hddrive" to the directory info I
gave (I don't remember exactly except for /tmp).
