When Attempting to upgrade a RH6.0 machine to 6.1 Using 3com509 Etherlink III, and DHCP, from an FTP server (also a RH6.0 box)on the local LAN (10mb ethernet), in the graphical installer (the graphics would not start, the installer would act as a text install then fail with an Error 500 comand not understood after the examining system message) When Using a text install the same thing would also happen. After reconfiguring the server to NFS, and running an NFS install the installer ran properly in graphics mode (did not try text mode) Ike Stewart

We have seen problems where people are specifying paths to the source files and adding trailing slashes (so, entering "/mnt/test/cartman/i386/" instead of "/mnt/test/cartman/i386") and this is causing problems. Reopen this bug if this solution does not work for you.

This issue has been assigned to a developer for further action.
