Originally the win98 exit in the system.
I just want to install the dual os by adding the linux 7 into PC.
when my installation, I got such exception generated by software:

This bug is not related to the Installation Guide. Please file anaconda
tracebacks from the installation program against the component anaconda.
Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2001-01-15 19:55:37 EST
This occurs when the hard drive image you are installing from is missing files
or has corrupt files. I recommend you copy it again.
