Description of problem:
I want to use a CD R/W CD drive. I installed with a regular CD drive. I
installed the device. My RedHat Linux 9 Unleased book has a list of modules
needed for a CD R/W, and I did not have some or all of those modules. I was
going in with the install CD to add those modules. Anaconda crashed once, and I
dumped to a floppy. I tried again and it crashed again. The message on the
screen said file a bug report against anaconda.

I tried zipping the file with tar, but the zip file is bigger than the
By the way, this happened on an experimental Linux workstation with no data
stored on the hard drive. So I decided to try a clean install, wiping out the
Linux partitions that existed before. Anaconda crashed part way through the
first CD, it appeared to be exactly the same crash.
This may be relevant: the CD R/W is a Ricoh MP7083A-NP. I could find lots in
Google by leaving off the -NP and searching for Linux Ricoh MP7083A; with the
-NP, I only found a couple. Of the lots that I found, many are in other
languages, and many are kernel issues.
It did not occur to me to do a Google search including anaconda -- I will try
that a little later.
I did a Google search for anaconda Ricoh MP7083A, but it turned up nothing.
This should be resolved in newer releases of Fedora Core. If you
continue to have this problem with newer releases, please reopen with
the details of those problems.
