Description of problem:
I'm trying to upgrade a RH 7.1 machine to fedora. After detecting the
mouse/keyboard/display, anaconda stops with "install exited
abnormally". The install is supposed to be via ftp.

Comment 2 Christian Schumann 2004-01-05 04:11:31 EST
Yes, I can. I used the floppy on other computers without problems,
too. These were alle non-SMP-machines.

Closing due to inactivity.  If you continue to have this problem on a
newer release of Fedora Core, please reopen and add any additional
