It appears to come down to the hard drive.
Installation Fail:
SEAGATE MODEL: ST310211A U Series 5  10 GB
16383 CYL, 16 HDS, 63 SECT

Installation Ok - or at least it starts to install modules
6218 CYL, 16 HDS, 63 SECT
Comment 3 randall iwami 2003-09-07 22:03:27 EDT
I have finally figured out why I am having problems with the Seagate drive.  It 
has to do with the drive being in Cable Select mode.  In Master mode I have no 
problem with the installation.  I don't understatnd why, but that's that 
solution to my problem.
