Description Lene Jensen 2003-03-25 12:03:43 UTC
Description of problem:
While trying to install beta on laptop using pcmci.img and pcmciadd.img,
installs are impossible over net.  Instead of asking for nfs,ftp or http, it
gives harddrive as only option.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Every single time I try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.dd if=pcmcia.img of=/dev/fd0
2.dd if=pcmciadd.img of=/dev/fd0
3.insert pcmcia.img in floppy drive and reboot
4.start install by pressing return
5.when asking for driver disk, insert the pcmciadd.img
6.choose languag and keyboard

HTTP"

Um, there is no pcmcia.img anymore.  What exactly are you installing?
