Description of problem:
I have A SuSE Linux 8.0 Installation running and wanted to install Red Hat 8.0
as Test-system in parallel.

following Messages appear after loading aic7xxx module and starting x-server:

Running anaconda

probing video card: nvidea gefoce 2 mx
probing monitor type: unable to probe
probing mouse: ....
Traceback (most recent call last)
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", Line 639, in ?
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iutils.py", line 420, in makeDriveDeviceNodes
isys.makeDevInode(drive,"/dev/%s" % (drive,))
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/isys.py",line265,in makeDevInode
SystemError: (2, 'No such File or Directory')

install exited abnormally.

I made a posting on Linux-foren.de, where someone told me, that the installation
will work by installing first Red Hat and then SuSE.
But this is (just at the moment) no option for me!

PS: The CD has passt the mediacheck corectly

The error occurs in graphical and lowres-mode as well as in textmode.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start installation in graphical or textmode

Actual Results:  installation ended with message:

and shut down PC

Expected Results:  anaconda should be started
