Exclamation Bootable DVD, hwdata-0.101.27-1-noarch Install Fails


I'm not exactly sure if my subject is actually correct, but here goes:

I created a single bootable DVD from the RedHat distro CDs (RH3U8). When I attempt to run the install, the system instructs me to "Please insert disc 2" when it is trying to install the packages. The package that it happens on is hwdata-0.101.27-1-noarch. I have verified that the package does exist on the installation DVD, but it still asks for "Disc 2". Any ideas?

How did you create this DVD image????

Hopefully you used something like the mkdvdiso.sh (direct link):

Lenard,
yes taht's exactly how I created the DVD and then I burned it using Nero. When I attempt to install from the DVD, it gets all the way to preparing to install packages (no problems copying the image to hard drive), then it starts asking for Disc 2 to install hwdata-0.101.27-1-noarch.

Hmmmm......... this should have been taken care of then.

Check the hidden .diskinfo file on the DVD media. You should see a line with: 1,2,3

Also are you sure you used the right images to create the DVD??? From what I can see RHEL3u8 should have hwdata-0.101.30-1.noarch.rpm
