Comment 1 Ken Smith 2003-01-26 18:22:27 UTC
I have the same problem.  Used CD's in book "Red Hat Linux 8 unleashed" by
Bill Ball, Hoyt Duff.  (Red Hat 8.0 Publisher's version).  I was finally able 
to install it with just the 3 desktop environments (X, KDE, GNOME) and no 
other packages.  First time failed when installing Server packages and desktop 
packages.  Second time failed with Personal Desktop version (but with a 
different file not found--> emacs file).  Third time I was successful.  Will 
now add packages one by one.

Comment 2 Yixin Fan 2003-01-26 18:55:16 UTC
successful only with "minimum" installation.

Sometimes getting different "not found" message, but most of the time says
"/mnt/sysimage/var/tmp/kernal-2.4.18-14.i686.rpm" not found.
