Description Michael Redinger 2003-08-05 13:19:40 EDT
When doing a text mode network (NFS) installation, the installer comes to the
point where it asks me for a network card driver (I can choose a driver or enter
a driver disk).

Below the dialog, on the blue background, I see the following text message (in

error reading /proc/partitions!

Maybe this is because I am doing a network install, and the driver for my SCSI
disk is not yet available (aic7xxx).

This is a Dell PowerEdge 2400 dual processor server.

This bug does not do any harm - everything works fine.

Hmm... not sure why it would get a read error, though.  *shrug*  Made it quieter.
