Description Need Real Name 2000-10-12 10:35:55 UTC
I'm a Linux novice, upgrading 6.2 to 7 during the install I got the error 
below which the installer suggested was a bug. I can't tell if it's 
similar to the reported anaconda errors or not.

ERROR MESSAGE

Did you write this CDROM yourself?

Comment 2 Need Real Name 2000-10-19 08:40:14 UTC
Yes, The Cd's were ftp'd from 
http://www.mirror.ac.uk/sites/ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/redhat-7.0/iso/

7.0-i386-disc1.iso 670564352 and 7.0-i386-disc2.iso 676231168

I then burned them myself.

Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2000-10-27 20:02:42 UTC
Please try downloading the images from a different site (be sure to use binary
mode transfers).

It looks like you images were corrupted.
