Description of problem:
Attempting to install fedora core test 3 on an IBM 240 laptop with an Iomega zip
650 CDRW drive.  Installations on this hardware have worked fine in redhat 8 and 9.

Boot system from floppy.  Starts up, asks language, keyboard, install media

It then says it is installing the usb-storage module.  Most times it then says
that there is no appropriate drive to install from.  Other times it seems to get
a little further, then crashes saying  it is getting bad magic from cpio.  

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot from floppy and attempt to install from external USB CD drive

Actual Results:  Does not mount cdrom or mounts it then cannot read it.

Expected Results:  system installs.

Additional info:

Note that when I tried to do a media check on the cd, that worked fine  and the
media passed.
But I cannot install.  I do not know if previous severn tests work on this
machine or not.

Yes - added an attachment showing the errors - sorry, didn't think of that.
Comment 5 Steve Hanson 2003-10-14 18:59:26 EDT
This may in fact not be a problem with Severn, but a hardware problem. I note
that this drive is suddenly flaky on the same computer with Redhat 9 - which it
has always worked just fine with.   I'll look into it some more, but I'm now
fairly sure this is a problem with the Iomega drive itself.
Comment 6 Jeremy Katz 2003-10-15 14:41:50 EDT
If it's the hardware, feel free to close -- if not, it could be something
usb-storage related in the kernel.
Comment 7 Steve Hanson 2003-10-15 14:46:48 EDT
I'm going to close this since it appears that my problem here is that the
hardware has
become very heat sensitive and only works for a while after power-on -

Sorry for the noise
