Description Stephen John Smoogen 2000-01-09 04:22:49 UTC
Am trying to install RH Linux on a minimal system:

486 DX66
16 megs of Ram
  100 meg scsi ID 0
  800 meg scsi ID 3
Soundblaster 2x Cdrom (Panasonic)

Driver disk is first screen that comes up on text install without
explanation of why it is there or what to do.

Better text suggestion:

Welcome to Red Hat Linux. If your hardware vendor has supplied you with a
Linux driver disk for specific hardware, please insert now. Otherwise hit
