Thanks for the help with my Red Hat 7.3 problems...I took Guy's advice and

I went to http://download.fedora.redhat.com/ in order to obtain my
bootdisk.img and netdrv.img.
The exact location of these files is
I booted from the bootdisk and started up the installer (it clearly states
Fedora Core 1). I chose my language, keyboard type. Then my installation
method--HTTP. Then I'm asked for the driver disk for my NIC. That seems to
work just fine (woo-hoo!); I continue by using DHCP... Then I'm asked for
the Web site name and Red Hat directory...I enter:
Retrieving Fedora/base/stage2.img... (Patiently waiting)...Then I get this

your boot media." This machine had no file system on it prior to
I made the bootdisk and netdrv disk on a Debian (woody) machine with "mk2efs
/dev/fd0; dd if=bootdisk.img of=/dev/fd0 bs=1024 conv=sync; sync" commands.
Can anyone help? Am I making the disks in the wrong fashion? Am I using
the wrong .img files from the wrong download sites?
