I have tried to install LINUX 7.0 on my PC HP OmniBook 6000 (P II with 256 
RAM, but without success. 

The PC hangs up and the following information is received. Since the whole 
installation process hangs I have been forced to write the information 
I have tried to use the released patch package "Update-disk-20001009.img", 
but the same thing happens. 

Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py",line 
20, in run
   rc = self.todo.doInstall ()

Could you please give step by step of instructions on how to reproduce?

I think that this TR should be cancelled. I made a misstake when i defined the 
allocated area for the Linux Native and the Swap area.
Today a did the whole installation again and it worked fine.
Sorry for this.
