Files are missing or corrupted in the hard drive install image you are using.
Make sure you've copied all the required files in a binary safe method.
Thanks for the response, but, I think the problem is not with the boot.image. The kbdconfig routine can't find a match for my keyboard and fails, rather
than assign a generic type. I'm installing on a new ( 11/2000 ) HP 6726-R Celeron w/ Windoze ME on it. I've booted from a DOS disk to run fips.exe,
created a 2nd DOS partition, did the ftp of the boot image in binary mode and used rawrite.exe to put it on diskette. I got the same error with the
pcmcia.image, too. And I applied the 20001009-updates-image and still the same. I think I'm doing the right things, but, I don't think the installer knows
my new keyboard. My 10 year old son is interested in Linux and the install is for him. I've got some options to try and prove where the problem lies (
alternate keyboard, 2nd machine ), so while I'm doing that, could you see if new keyboard is the problem.
