Description of problem:
When installing from a DVD or CD on a standard IDE interface to a
SATA drive, It makes it through the installation to ask all the
questions and format the partitions, but panics / fails when it starts
to copy/install the packages. I have a copy of the dump, It said I
should have it copied to a floppy and sent to bugzilla. I created the
floppy. What do I do with the Text file it generated?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install from CD or DVD to a SATA Hard Drive
2. Fill in entries and settings for packages
3. After formatting the partitions, when it gets ready to install the
packages selected, it has a fault. I saves the info to a floppy (it
was an option and was requested to forward to bugzilla). How do I
send you the file I have on floppy?
Actual Results: There was a window tha popped up that said save this
to a floppy and send to bugzilla
Expected Results: The packages should have installed
I checked for clues on the web and it is reported on other forums that
this is a typical problem when installing any version to a SATA drive.
I added a standard IDE drive and installed to that no problem, now I
am trying to figure out how to "move" it to a SATA drive and see if
Linux runs well on that!

This is the file that was generated by the anaconda dump
This is fixed in FC3
