I downloaded the mandrake v9.2 iso and tried to make a network install from an nfs server on a windows computer. The install crashed on "stage 2".
When i looked at the iso, i realized that some files needed by the install program were empty.. (runtinstall2, for example)
I tried to get the iso from a different ftp site, checked the signatures, all is the same...
So then, i got the v10.0 iso; same problem, same empty files.
I ended up burning a mix of the iso and the missing files (downloaded from ftp) on a cd, and the install is now able to complete... sometimes.
Did anyone have the same problem?
it may not look too bad like that, but it took me 2 days of download, install, troubleshooting and frustration to finally install linux
