Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2002-11-26 10:55:35 UTC
can you try 
linux mem=xxxM
as command on the very first screen (where xxx is 16Mbyte less than the amount
of memory you have)

Comment 2 marco 2002-11-26 11:17:38 UTC
I have 2GB Ram (2048Mb) so i try
linux mem=2032M and the result are:

install exited abormal -- received signal 11
Ctrl Alt F3

(just the last one)
#modules to insert ide-cd
Ctrl Alt F4

Comment 3 marco 2002-12-09 13:59:27 UTC
I have removed 1GB ram and now the RedHat 8.0 works perfect.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
