I am installing from hardrive dowload from ftp site.

Ok - I searched your archives and found similiar failures, but not this exact one which refers to MAKEDEV.  But, extrapolating from the other 
issues, I assumed my problem might be a bad MAKEDEV image.  So, I re-downloaded it IN BINARY mode, from a DIFFERENT mirror.  This 
did not rectify the problem.  Then I tried the updates img floppy.  The update image was loaded ok, but I got the same exact failure.  What is a 
fellow to do?

Is the key needed to be downloaded? If so, could I be missing it & where does it go?

Thanks!

I have received some input from someone that my problem is that I have downloaded the src packages instead of the executable packages.  

Be advised that this is not all my fault, although I do take some blame:

your download instructions called for:
ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/current/i386/RedHat/RPMS

Well - ur server is hard to get to, so I went to a mirror.  Confirm that your path is incorrect for a mirror site.  The actual path is:
/pub/redhat/current/i386/en/RedHat/RPMS
or, I assume (?):
/pub/redhat/redhat-7.0/i386/en/RedHat/RPMS

where did I get my files?:
/pub/redhat/redhat-7.0/SRPMS/i386/SRPMS

Being a total newbie to redhat - I didn't know the difference between SRPMS ans RPMS - I figured maybe SRPMS were a newer convention.  Try not to 
laugh, please.

So, you may want to update you download instructions.  I will turn a few screws upstairs for my part.

Thanks!

Sorry for the confusion - I hope everything is working well now.
