When installing packages it got as far as setup-2.3.2-1 the procedure
failed with the following error. The "Save to floppy" did not sae anything
to the floppy, so I've had to retype everything hopefully it is all

What type of install was this? ftp, cdrom, hard drive, nfs, ? It looks like
the package was missing from whatever medium you installed from in which case
anaconda does fail.
also, this is an installer bug... reassigning
I experienced this as well, during an upgrade from cdrom. I've performed
checksums on the iso image used and the checksum comes out correctly. The
package setup-2.3.2-1.noarch.rpm does reside in the Redhat/RPMS directory on the
cdrom, but I am unable to verify it's contents since I have not been able to
upgrade to rpm 4.0. The package does show up as being 13990 bytes long and has
a md5 checksum of bf4acccb8924c750af1500bbfb267abb.
I experienced the same thing on the FTP based install from a server on the same
network. As it turns out, the crash occurs when the system wants disk-2. The
network based install never asks for a second disk, just crashes. I threw a CD-
ROM on the system, and the install made it to the same place, then promted me
for the second CD. After inserting it, the install continued, and the OS is
now working fine.
I also experienced the same thing on an FTP install from ftp.redhat.com. Didn't matter what type of install I did, workstation, custom, it always stopped
with that error. (I am wondering how so many other people were able to get it to run when I can't get past this step.) I am a newbie at this so I had no
idea what to do. :( Any suggestions?
Same here. I thought it was my promise controller or something, but now I'm
glad everyone is having the same problem. I guess its just a bad .iso image,
so RedHat, please fix it. I'll be looking for the fixed cd image, otherwise
I'll just get mandrake or something. Mandrake actually works. Email me if
there's a simple solution or if there's a new iso that works. I'm trying to
install from nothing. It seemed like after the packages installed that the
error occured, so I figured it pretty much finished, but it won't even boot to
that partition, so I need this to be fixed. It was after the 2nd CD, and not
between the two. So if you know how you got yours to finish installing, please
email me at email@example.com, or if there's a new iso.
I also received this when I tried to do a fresh install from CDrom.
This is most certainly related to some combination of the CD media and the CDROM
