Could you post this to OCLUG for me?
I need to know if anyone has attempted an NFS install of RedHat,
I'm 100% certain that the server is running (i can mount from a 3rd
machine). The client (machine i intend to install) is connecting, but i
get the error message "That directory does not seem to contain a Red Hat
installation tree." (on the client)
What, if anything, does the installer use as a test? What do i have to
do to get it to detect this as an image? If i have to enter something
in /etc/hosts, what is the default host/domain that RedHat uses while
installing (before it gets set manually)?
I read the README, but all it says is to copy both CD's to your hard
drive. I've done that, it gives me the same error.
With exactly the same image, the FTP installer works (but it requires
20MB of ram, which this client doesn't have), and is MUCH slower.
