Hello List,

I've read as much as I can at the fedora lists in regards to doing an
network( via nfs) install of FC9. I found were the .iso has to be loop
mounted then have anaconda point to this mount point.Besides an nfs
install this is also a problem with ftp,and html installs as well I have
found. FYI. This got me a little farther than at first were pointing to
the actual .iso failed at "Cant not find the iso9660 image".
Now pointing anaconda to the actual loop mount point I get past this,
but stops at "can not retrieve repository metadata,(repomd.xml) file."
Please verify its path.
I have the k12linix-terminal-server.iso loop mounted to   /mnt/fc9
this is the path I give anaconda installer.
Could someone please give me any pointers on what my path should be on
I'm used to doing network installs for the ease and speed of it,:-)
