Description robin.kelland 1999-10-15 15:19:21 UTC
Redhat 6.1 Network Installation via FTP has no option for
Non anonymous FTP servers.

------- Additional Comments From   10/26/99 17:05 -------
Just to confirm that this is a real problem in some situations because
of the chroot security feature. It can be at best tricky to change a
mount point to make the appropriate images appear under /home/ftp.
This is relevant in a small office or home network where anon ftp is
not normally in use. Admittedly, a nfs install can probably be used
instead in most such cases.
