I downloaded the RedHat directory onto /dev/hda2 in
/ftp/pub/linux/starbuck/i386/RedHat. The boot.img's
installer does not recognize this directory when I type in
its path (/ftp/pub/linux/starbuck/i386) during the
installation sequence. If I move that directory, instead, to
simply /RedHat, the installer correctly recognizes the
directory when I type in the path (just "/").

This particular problem is with Starbuck 5.9.7. I did not
have this problem at all with 5.9.0.

One of my friends has confirmed this error on his own
machine, which has rather different hardware than mine.

hard drive install issues?
