System: NetBSD roystonvasey.local 1.5.2 NetBSD 1.5.2 (GATE) #5: Sat Aug 18 23:28:50 BST 2001 cjep@roystonvasey.local:/exports/src-1.5/sys/arch/i386/compile/GATE i386


This is on i386, but may be relevant to other platforms.

On the install floppy (boot-big.fs) which is used as the CD-ROM boot
image, the default directory for the binary sets has i386 at the 
beginning, which does not exist on a CD-ROM made with "make iso-image"
in src/etc.

	Make a release CD. e.g.
	setenv DESTDIR /usr/destdir
	setenv RELEASEDIR /usr/release
	cd /usr/src && make release && cd ../xsrc && make release
	cd /usr/src/etc && make iso-image

	Use the CD to boot a machine and choose CD-ROM as install method.

	Perhaps an architecture directory should be made in $RELEASEDIR,
	or something along those lines.
