Description James P. Keith 2000-10-05 19:25:50 UTC
During the installation of RH7, I mistakenly inserted a write protected
floppy when it was time to build a boot disk.  The installer skipped to the
next step without indicating that a  boot disk was not created.

Related to bug  18496.

Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2000-12-22 00:15:22 UTC
I've tried this a few times and when I inserted a write-protected disk the
installer comes back with an error message asking you to check the disk and try
again.
