According to DELL ISSUE TRACKER 14909 this issue still exists in beta 5.

I have done non-anonymous ftp installs successfully with recent trees.

What were the test conditions that failed?

Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2003-02-21 03:58:11 UTC
Out of curiosity, were you connecting as a user who a) had a homedir other than
/ b) wasn't chroot'd when logging into the ftp server and c) trying to use an
absolute path based on /?

If so, this is fixed with the python package I built this afternoon.

Yes to all. I'm using a regular user named "install" whose home directory is
/home/install. I was using the absolute path, which is /var/ftp/pub/........

Would it be possible to get an anaconda update disk to verify the fix?
