Anaconda Dump File
This is the full dump that I get when trying to install RHEL4AS-Update 4
to an intel DG965RY.
I added the "pci=nommconf" to the kernel boot line.
also needed to put a 3com905-tx network card in place since the onboard 82566DC
network card could not be configured (although it is able to PXE and get to the
point to config the other card).
let me know if you need any more information or if I should start this as
another bug since I did not create this original bug.
like to get cc's on this since not owner, but same issue
Your ks.cfg references sda but the disk for this box is hda.
