We installed Redhat 4.2 from CD successfully. We had to remove it due
to our own mistreatment of the system. Upon subsequent re-installs
the first directory is tmp. The root is a subdirectory of tmp. At the
fdisk prompt we get the normal message that it is running on
/dev/hdb. However, when I do P I get: Disk /tmp/hdb: etc and
that is the way that n adds new directorys, as sub of /tmp. An
interval install of a Debian version installed OK and the Redhat
install after that Installed OK. But we removed Redhat again and
are back to the tmp/root/etc problem. I would use the
Debian CD again except that its gone with the magazine it came in.
Any suggestions on how to delete tmp from the install? We
have used Partition Magic and OS/2's fdisk to remove all
partitions so I'm sure the drive itself has nothing on it.
