Description of problem:
After saving the exception data to a floppy the user should be permitted to 
save it again to a second floppy. 
Floppy disks are very unreliable and it's not uncommon to have read errors.  
It's very annoying to have to go through the entire install procedure to 
repeat a crash because a floppy disk error prevented reading the data.  It 
would be much nicer if after the first floppy failed I could click on a button 
labeled "make another copy". 
Also it would be nice to support USB mass storage devices.  Floppy disks are 
becoming obsolete. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Cause anaconda to crash and save to floppy.

USB storage device support would be nice, I agree.  We have recently added
support  to use scp to send the traceback to a remote machine.  You might find
that useful.  It could still be more forgiving of mistakes, but I'll work on it.
Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2005-12-02 14:07:52 EST
Saving to a remote host via scp is now working well.  In the future, we'll
investigate using a USB device for saving instead of/in addition to floppies.
