Description Terry Lemons 2003-03-12 02:43:03 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows 98; T312461; .NET CLR 1.0.3705) Description of problem: Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.using CDs provided in 'Red Hat Linux 8 Bible', perform a 'linux text' installation 2.make the obvious selections 3.after the last package is installed and the boot floppy is being created, anaconda aborts. Actual Results: I rebooted and received the error 'GRUB Read Error' Expected Results: I expected that the installation would create the boot floppy, would reboot, and GRUB would be able to boot RHL 8.0. Additional info: I'm trying to install this on a Digital Equipment Corporation Venturis PC. This system uses a Phoenix Technologies Ltd. BIOS dated 01/15/98. Though the BIOS does include a setting for LBA, I wonder how complete the implementation is . . . .

Red Hat Linux 8.0 requires a Pentium processor or newer.

Thanks for the reply. I spent 1/2 an hour searching www.redhat.com, but can't find information on Red Hat's prior releases? Do any Red Hat distributions support 80486 processors? If so, from where can I download them? Thanks! tl

I'm not sure if it's officially supported, but Red Hat Linux 7.3 is the last version that shipped with an i386 kernel/glibc.
