Post GRUB4DOS ISO install urpmi - help!
After a successful (?) install from ISO image via GRUB4DOS, I find that my Linux Mandriva 2009 can't upgrade / install software because it can't find the ISO it loaded from (On a WinXP partition).
A cryptic: urpmi update message is all I receive.
I am assuming some form of path / pointer input is needed.
But I cannot decipher how or what to do in this instance.

Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

Welcome to LQ.

Please open the software manager, "Add & Remove Software"
or do the command : su <type password> and then rpmdrake.

Look for : Settings > > Media Manager : Configure Media.

In the "Configure Media" window you can untick the lines
with Cd-rom etc. ..... and confirm with "OK".

Then you shouldn't be asked for ' Install media ' any more.

The above configuration is also to be found in the file
