Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 10047
floppy 6.1 is NOT compatible with CD 6.1
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:54 EDT
CD states being 6.1 but identifies itself as 6.0 during installation
process in plain text (F6 generates a colored ANACONDA).
Installation asks for "drivers" that it looks up on floppy but "doesn't
exist"; dies after few minutes in black/white vertical stripes, then white
blank screen and FREEZE.
GUI is NOT available as advertised.

You seem to have gotten a bad CDROM or floppy. Have you tried booting the cd, or
making a floppy from the cd?
I HAVE NOT TRIED THAT - I WOULDN'T KNOW HOW TO DO THAT.
So I return the package to the store, perhaps I'll get a set that WORKS.
This is my 4th version of LINUX that has a problem, including RedHat 6.0
and 6.1, only one worked (Mandrake) but is so different from all known
that I gave up getting on the internet, just to start with.
