  Thank you that fixed the problem. I downloaded a new iso for disk 1.
Now I am having a new problem. I keep getting a system hang while installing 
packages during installation.On the ctrl-alt-F1 screen, I get an error that 
      (anaconda :76): GnomeCanvas -critical**: file gnome-canvas-path-def.c : 
line 1142
      (Gnome_canvas_path_def.any-closed : assertion 'path!=null'. failed

Sometimes the "(anaconda: 76)" reads "(anconda: 85)"

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

That is just a warning message and always happens. I know its confusing.

What hardware is in your system?
Comment 6 Harry Foster 2003-09-19 23:38:16 EDT
The hardware is as follows:
 1. Gateway Crystalscan monitor
 2. Dell dimension xps t500 w/PIII 500 mhz and 176 megs/ram
 3. 16x dvdrom
 4. western digital 80 gb hard drive (partitioned 20gb/windows,60gb/linux 
trying to configure for dual boot using Grub bootloader. ( this was already 
setup in my older gateway system.))
 5. Promise ultra 66 ide card
 6. 3com ethernet card 3c905 cx-txm
 7. Diamond Multimedia Sonic impact S100 sound card
 8. Aztech 56k modem
 9. floppy drive
 10. Onboard USB ports (I believe it is ver. 1.1)

 Some additonal notes that might be needed:
      A)The  harddrive is connected to the Promise controller card set as 
master, the dvd rom is connected to the motherboards ide controller connector 1 
set as master.
      B) The 3com ethernet card is attached to a cable modem with internet 
connection always on.
      C) The memory is both parity and non-parity in different banks.
Comment 7 Michael Fulbright 2003-09-23 16:25:57 EDT
You need to have disc 1 through 3 in a directory by themselves with no other
ISOs present.
Comment 8 Harry Foster 2003-09-24 01:42:11 EDT
 I have tried it from cd's that I have made but I still get a hang after the 
packages start being installed. Also it hangs on different install types, 
different package selections, and never hangs on the same package. I booted 
from the cd not from a boot floppy.
Comment 9 Jeremy Katz 2004-10-04 23:24:05 EDT
This should be better iwth newer releases.
