Re: request for clarification: Redhat 7.3, FTP/iso install?



FYI -- I've submitted
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=65811 as I tried
mounting the ISOs under the directories documented and anaconda
subsequently blew up.  As you can see from the web server logs anaconda
forgot about looking under disc1....humm, wonder if 'ln -s disc1 RedHat'
would fix it?
