RE: Unable to install via FTP



Hi,

Does your FTP server log anything regarding this, if not, do you see any
traffic using a tcpdump to your host?

No, not kickstart.  Just a standard installation over the network using
the RHEL 4 disc 1 as the boot medium.  It should plop me down into a
text-mode anaconda session where I can go through the steps I would use
if I were installing from the CD just using the FTP server as the source
for all the packages.
