Description of problem:
Trying to either to a fresh installation or an upgrade from 0.95
failes with "An error occured transferring the install image ...".
On tty2 (ALT-F2), one reads "-/bin/sh: relocation error: -/bin/sh:
symbol , version GLIBC_2.0 not defined in file libc.so.6 with link
Using the same media, upgrading an Sony Vaio Z600NE (Pentium
III-based) was a piece of cake (though the PCMCIA-CD-ROM is no longer

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Take an athlon-based system, running FC 0.95
2. Boot "linux text", select either "upgrade" or "reinstall" (on a new

three times now ...
Actual Results: Error message appears.

Does booting with 'linux allowcddma' help?
Booting "linux mem=64M" and using the graphical installation worked.
"linux text mem=128M" or "linux text mem=64M" yielded the same error.
Seems to me that "linux text" is somewhat broken (see "relocation
error" message above; I only -- and always -- get this with "linux text").
AMD Duron 900, 512 MB, ECS K7S5A Mainboard.
I'll check "linux allowcddma" on next reboot.
"linux allowcddma text" does not yield to the relocation error. Funny.
I didn't try re-installation since I need the system right now; I'll
try to empty a partition and test a complete installation.
The relocation error is not dependent on the system being athlon
based, I got the same error on my intel system.
Also the relocation error doesn't seem to cause the install image
transfer error. I still got the relocation error even though I was
able to install successfully after adding mem=64M.
