Description of problem:

Expected Results: ( System should install properly.
System should warn me about some problem. )
System should not reboot till I know a good reason.
Installer should tell me to install in text mode if it's going to be
There is no PCMCIA hardware in the system / everything is standard IBM
thinkpad HW otherwise / machines have been otherwise stable. Test
