Please forgive me if this is not the place to report this: I reach an infinite loop while attempting to upgrade through FTP: I follow the install procedure up until i click/select >FTP install >Upgrade >(require PCMCIA support?)->yes >(have SCSI device?) -> no After that it asks for which module to load after briefly saying "module not found". I do not know exactly what it's looking for but it presents a list starting with: 3com 3c509 3com 3c515 and so on. No matter what I select, I get to another screen asking to autodetect parameters or entering them in manually. From there a new screen/window says it is not found and I am taken back to the previous menu with the driver listing. There is no way of breaking out of this loop or getting past it, regardless of which driver I select (and I tried all of them). I was installing from Redhat 5.1 with a 2.0.35 kernel on a Toshiba Satellite Pro 480CDT notebook. I did not encounter this problem when upgrading from 5.0 to 5.1 through FTP.

The installer is looking for your network card in order to perform the FTP install and not finding it. Do you have a network card installed in the system? If not, you might want to consider using an alternate install method.
