Hi Guys.

Just a quick question.

Just donwloaded the SGI XFS RH8 inst image.
Copied to CD all OK.

When I install all goes well until the end of the 1st RH CD. It then
asks me to insert "cd6", no matter what I do or which type of install I
do,i.e Server desktop etc.

I dont have this CD and as from what I can tell there isn't really a cd6
( apart from the Manuals ) can you shed any light on this.

This is being installed on an SGI 1200.
Which is giving me some other issues.
After failing with the above.
I tried to install RH8 standard ext3 and format the disk etc.
That then only needed disk 1 and all went OK.
But on reboot it fails at the SCSI controller.

Many thanks for any help.
