Can't find CD images directory


During an Linux 7.2 installation I'm presented with a screen that says:

"What partition and directory holds the Cd images for RedHat Linux"

The partition is "/dev/hde1" for my first harddrive but the directories that I have ".img" files in are:

"/Linux/Disk1/images"
&
"/Linux/Disk1/RedHat/base"

But neither seems to be acceptable to the install program, what next

Thanks Unix Guru

your first hard drive is hde???

i'd presume it's looking for .iso files and not .img files if you've booted from disk to install from hard disk.

It does seem like a strange way to install it.
