dosutils/autoboot.bat points to:


there aint a misc\src\trees\initrd.img

there is a initrd-local.img.  I assume that is the file that
should be used.  Not sure if there is a symlink that got

Archive mirrored from

I have verified this to be true.

in i386/dosutils/autoboot, vmlinux is a directory and
should be a file. There is a .in.vmlinuz. file...

This was from the mirror at metalab. I could not login to
the main FTP site or any other mirror to check if this is
a global problem or a mirror problem.
