The driver disk did nothing, either way. I have been totally unable to get RH to recognize my CD. So, after admitting defeat, I decided to partition the hard drive with a fat32 partition big enough to hold the entire CD. That being done, I tried again installing RH 6.1.
This time, I was able to get a lot farther along in the installation. It was able to find the CD contents on my HD just fine. So, I proceeded. Then, after specifying root password, user id and password, and so forth, it started cranking with the install. Then, it failed with the following message:
"/tmp/lib/python1.5/site-packages/comps.py", line 50, in __init__ name = h[rpm.RPMTAG_NAME] TypeError: unsubscriptable object
I know that this is not in the PCMCIA realm. But, if I ever get this thing loaded, I'll be back! I found, however, that there is a zero byte file in that directory. I'm following-up. What a pain!
