We're getting close. As I said, the mirror is on /dev/sdb1 where the
path to the install image is:


I think that's *almost* what I need. To get this to run I actually input
the path up to .../os/ and let it find the rest. It takes me through the
partitioning scheme and to the "Boot loader operating system list"
window. Hitting "Next" there generates the following error message:

Missing ISO 9660 Image
The installer has tried to mount image #1, but cannot find it on the
hard drive.
Please copy this image to the drive and click Retry. Click Exit to abort
the installation.
				[ Exit ]  [ Retry ]

Doesn't anaconda know how to mount CD/DVD images any more? They're
in .../iso/. Do I need to modify the path above?
