I have recently DL'd the redhat 5.2 version of Linux. I have read the
instructions for installation and chose to install from Hard Drive. I am
installing this on a 486 DX4100 with an Adaptec 1542 scsi controller and 2 2
GB drives. the first drive (hds1) is a dos drive. the second I have
partitioned using disk druid to a 54 MB Linux Swap and a 1.9 Gb Linux native
which is the root.
As per the installation instructions, I created a "redHat" directory on the
root of C:, I then copied the "Base" and "RPMS" directories into it.
My problem arises when I select "Install from hard drive" and then select
the hds1 device. The installation halts with a message indicating that it
cannot locate a redhat installation tree on the selected device.
Am I doing something wrong here? are the instructions wrong? what am I
Thanks in advance for any help.
