preupgrade asking for CDROM files?

I need some assistance understanding what the preupgrade approach to grub configuration is.

It seems to want CDROM files and can't make use of the nice 100 Mb upgrade image that was produced from the preupgrade process. Has anyone experience in how to set up the grub.conf to make it use that image?

TIA

Is this related to having the CDrom a part of your yum.repos.d ?
if so try removing that.

No CDROM in yum repos.d

No. Never done it that way.

What I need to see is what a grub.conf file looks like when a functioning upgrade is rebooted immediately after downloading updates and the updates image is made. If I could see what that looks like, I might be able to work out what to do. Problem is, if it is functioning, it isn't seen, and likely deleted once the upgrade is completed.

Maybe not. If not, I'll just have to do a 3 Gig download instead of a 100 Meg. Bummer.

No. I've never done that. I'm talking about the stage where grub looks for its kernel information. The preupgrade began fine, but this system has three OSs on it, and that seems to confuse the new grub.conf file (or menu.lst as other distros call it). I'd like to see what a working grub.conf file looks like.
