Description of problem:
Ran "linux mediacheck" on all 3 install disks. Continued through the
install selecting "Upgrade from RH9" and "Update GRUB". After the
"Click to upgrade" and media confirmation, it said "Transferring
install image to hard disk". Then an error message after about 1
minute that said, "An error occurred transferring the install image to
your hard drive. You are probably out of disk space." The RH9
installation runs on a single partition of 37Gb with a 1Gb swap space.
I will attach the anacdump.txt and the dmesg.txt files for your
examination. This bug resembles #106965. None of the replies that I
tried worked (severn-T3-updates.img). Please let me know what I can
do to successfully upgrade to Core 1 from RH9. Thanks.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Upgrade from RH9.
Actual Results: Error message and I believe nothing was written to
the disk. My RH9 installation still works perfectly.
Expected Results: Upgrade to Fedora Core 1.
Please see attached text files for error output and system info.

System info about my current setup with RH9.
Does it work any better if you boot with 'linux allowcddma'?
It completed without a hitch. The progress messages were a little
faster as well. Thank you very much.
Okay, kernel bug that's fixed with the 2.6 kernel.
