Description Charlie Smith 2000-06-28 02:11:25 UTC
Pentium 75 - 16M memory

2 Hard drives

HD 1	1.2G	Partitions

		DOS / Windows	50M

		/		50M

		swap		100M

		/usr		500M

		/home		500M

HD 2	1.6G	Partitions

		DOS		600M

		This contains RedHat 'base' & 'RPMS' directories
		since the machine's CD-ROM is not functional

		/usr		100M

		/tmp		100M

I have tried the using the 'boot.img' file created from the
CD AND also tried the boot-RHEA-1999:044.img with and without
the updates-RHEA-1999:045.img from the website.

I get the following error in either case:

Exception Occured

Looks like a bad RPM on your hard drive.  Please make sure they are all intact
(do rpm -K on them)
