Description K2 2000-10-20 22:52:49 EDT
I made all steps before installation. After bar "Preparing for
installation..." apears installer hangs on around 80% of the bar. No
reaction on mouse or keyboard. After restart I had the same result.
Installation from CD, PlexWriter 12/10/32A. Before I installed Linux from
Sony 48x (both IDE) and it worked perfect.
Now PlexWriter set as master and Sony as slave. I tryed two different CD so
it's no media problem.

Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2000-10-27 18:08:19 EDT
So can I mark this a not a bug?
Comment 3 K2 2000-10-30 10:09:22 EST
I suppose so
But I still can't get what happened and the only sugession I have in this case
is upgrade to RedHat 7.0
