        Hi Folks!

        I found a problem on RH7.3 + XFS1.1 installer with RH 7.3 CD1 
verification. Please read bellow to get in context...

        It seem that I finally find the trouble... 

        RedHat has released another iso for valhalla-i386-disc1.iso, on 
June 17... an extract from ftp.redhat.com 

-rw-r--r--  1 0 0 668499968 Jun 17 18:57 valhalla-i386-disc1.iso
-rw-r--r--  1 0 0 669319168 Jun 14 04:49 valhalla-i386-disc2.iso
-rw-r--r--  1 0 0 517079040 Jun 14 04:50 valhalla-i386-disc3.iso

looking at a previous iso (probably from June 14)
cat /mnt/previous_iso/.disc1-i386
Valhalla 7.3 disc1

cat /mnt/latest_iso/.disc1-i386 
Valhalla 7.3 disc1

        I double checked md5sums and they were correct...

        SGI installer verifies (presumably) the timestamp on .disc1 file, 
that does not match the contents of the new iso....

        Is this correct? If so, how can I fix it to work with the new iso?

        Thanks in advance.

        Best regards,

        Paulo Matos
