Description of problem:

Couldn't Reproduce 
Actual Results:  I had to reboot and start over.  On the second 
attempt, I chose a full install (to not wast too much time), but it 
seems to work now.

The full dump would be very helpful.  The most helpful would be
clicking the "Create a New Attachment" link and then attaching it to
the bug report.

Can you reproduce this?  If you switch to tty2 when it happens, is
/mnt/sysimage mounted?
Comment 4 André Johansen 2004-06-09 02:24:02 EDT
I did try twice; once with a full install, then with custom 
selection, and both times worked.  I don't really want to reinstall 
my workstation now ;)

I'm going to guess gremlins in the network :)
Comment 6 André Johansen 2004-06-10 02:56:13 EDT
Be aware that the FTP server is on the corporate LAN, so I doubt 
that is the problem...
