Description of problem:
  I work at a private company that is a tenant on the grounds of a government 
  I have been using a boot diskette to start Redhat 7.1. I recently came back 
from vacation and a server had been added to our network. In the past, I was 
directly connected to a LAN and I was the only one in the office running 
redhat. Now all of the machines in the office (4 total) are connected to the 
  The server has antivirus software that investigates everything. I was 
switching from windows to linux and I inserted my boot disk before windows 
shutdown. As a result, my boot disk does not work anymore.
  I figured that I would upgrade using the same redhat 7.1, change nothing, and 
regenerate a boot disk. During this process, I forgot to insert a blank floppy 
and the upgrade process locked up. I rebooted (a no-no, I know) and I restarted 
the upgrade process. After the upgrade process checks for packages to upgrade, 
a message is generated and I cannot proceed past that Point. I am not sure why. 
Can you help me? Please?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
 Linux RedHat 7.1

How reproducible:
 Very Reproducible

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot machine with Linux RedHat Installation disk in
2. Hit enter to install with graphics window
3. Hit next on window options (Language, Keyboard, Packages)
Actual results:

Expected results:
 Upgrade process continues until boot diskette is generated

Additional info:
 I have the bug report on floppy, but didn't see where I could include it in 
this submission.

Closing bugs for old packages that don't have a maintainer.
