Assigning to a developer.
Comment 2 Matt Wilson 2001-01-26 15:42:36 EST
Is this from stock box-set media?
Comment 3 _rootshell_ 2001-01-26 20:34:15 EST
Yes it is, Redhat 7.0 Standard
Comment 4 Matt Wilson 2001-01-29 12:41:48 EST
The first thing I would try is contacting our support department and get some
new media.  Yours may be defective.

Could you tell me a little about your hardware?
Comment 5 _rootshell_ 2001-01-29 23:25:10 EST
What other information do you need?
Comment 6 Matt Wilson 2001-01-30 00:20:28 EST
oh, right - missed that bit.  I'm betting bad media at this point.
