Description Bart 2004-02-10 05:49:12 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET 
CLR 1.1.4322)

Description of problem:
Downloaded shrike-i386-disc2.iso at least 5 times from different 
mirror sites and burned on CDR and CDRW.
Workstation install fails during packages install from CD2 (cannot 
read Linux acrobat reader package)
Mediacheck for disc2 fails also everytime.

Mediacheck is ok for disc1 and disc3.

Tested on other drive (laptop) and mediacheck for disc2 + install 
works !

I have no other disc/media problems with my Toshiba SDR-5002 drive, 
so i guess it's an addressing / DMA issue..

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Redhat 9

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Downloaded iso from Belgian, German, USA,.. mirror sites
2. Burned on CDR, CDRW with Nero (Toshiba SDR-5002)
3. Retries installation and mediacheck couple of times
4. Mediacheck on different PC/Drive - works
5. Searched for same bug, found 102993 with same problem but closed 
because of inactivity !

Actual Results:  Installation unable to continue, system didn't boot 
after failed installation.

Expected Results:  Easy installation of Redhat 9 :-)

Different drives have different tolerances for the media they can
read.  I'd recommend trying on a different type of media / burning at
a slower speed and it should help things.
