Description of problem:
Got version 8.0 on three CD's with a book.
checked media were OK.
Have a 9 GB and 2.45 GB HDD's
Disk druid and whatever other method e.g. f disk has no problem
seeing the HDD's. Symptome of what follows happens whichever disk I
try to install to and whether I pick a minimum (400 Meg ) install or
maximum install (4.5 GB I believe)or any option in between.
Installs image to HDD and starts to install packages. I will give
example of Personal Desktop install i.e 1601MB
Gets about half way through (or on larger installs gets to second CD)
Then anaconda crashes (partial dump details below)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Red Hat Linux version 8
How reproducible: Happens no matter which install I select.
Screen gives following message
partial dump follows - 20 lines of text
