The following error occurred using the original v7.0 and lastest update (update-disk-20001009.img) of the anaconda installer while trying to
update version 6.2 to version 7.0: (This is the output of the anacdump.txt file)
The errors appear to be similiar to but not exactly the same as bug# 18876,19137,19234,19346

If you burned this CD image yourself make sure the ISO you downloaded matches
the md5sum given on the ftp site. Most likely you have a bad CD.
This error was first experienced with the deluxe retail package for v7. The update was attempted again using the new anaconda update image 20001009.
I do not believe this to be a corrupt image problem, unless it was corrupt on the v7 retail package. Has there been any reported image problems?
I do not know of any issues - this error occurs when the MAKEDEV package does
not exist on the CD, or it could not be read. That points at either a media
error, or a problem with the CDROM drive.
You may want to consider getting replacement CDs.
