I downloaded the entire RedHat 4.1 distribution onto a FAT partition.  Then tried to install using the install from hard drive option.  It reads in the set of packages okay, and I get up to the point where it is starting the actual install.  Then I get a message that the skeleton.cgz file is corrupted.  I have downloaded it multiple times to make sure it didn't get munged in the download.  Help!

Its not corrupted.  The fscking boot image is hosed.
Go to ftp.redhat.com and find /updates/images - forget
exactly where.  Get the new supp.img, and rawrite it
to floppy.

Then it will work perfectly
