Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2004-11-28 17:03:16 EST
When does the failure occur?  What version of the kernel package did
you already have installed?
Comment 2 Rick Lim 2004-11-29 00:32:54 EST
The failure happens right after the message "installing packages"
The kernel is vmlinuz-2.6.8-1.521
Comment 3 Rick Lim 2004-12-01 10:32:23 EST
Solved the installation problem by removing one of the installed 
kernels "vmlinuz-2.6.5-1.358"
After removing the kernel FC3 installed correctly


Here is my grub.conf if you want to duplicate the error.
