1)  Make sure you're specifying the RedHat directory which contains the RPMS and base diretories as the install directory.

If that doesn't work...

2)  Make sure that the case of the directories is proper (e.g. RedHat is RedHat and not redhat, RPMS is RPMS and not rpms, base is base and not BASE).  You may need to see what Linux thinks about it by using the command line facility during the installation.  For more information see http://www.users.fast.net/~rodsmith/rhjol-fat32.html.  I've also heard that this information is meaningful for FAT16 partitions as well.

OR

3)  RedHat has new boot disks out which may fix the particular installation problem you're having.  Look for the new boot disk images at http://www.redhat.com/support/docs/rhl/rh52-errata-general.html#BootImg  Follow their instructions.

Which route did you take?  The boot disk or Rod Smith's suggestions?
