    i've been trying to install red hat using the 'linux for dummies' book (4th
    edition with 2 CD ROMS of Red Hat 8 included), but have hit a problem.

    i've been following the 'booting from a floppy installation disk' on p.36
    and the book says:

    1. insert cd1 and make a note of the drive letter

    2. open the command prompt

    3. change to the drive letter noted in 1.

    4. change directory with the command 'cd dosutils'

    Now there doesnt seem to be a directory on the disk called 'dosutils'. i've
    used the windows Search tool to look for it and its come up with nothing.

    Any idea what this is and why it doesnt seem to be on the disk??
