Description Peter Lourens 2001-01-30 18:29:06 UTC
27/28 jan 2001: While upgrading fron RedHat 6.2 to RedHat 7.0 the install
crashed. This happened two times. The second time after I tried to upgrade
again. I needed to reinstall the computer, the 6.2 install refused to boot.

This is the output the installer wrote to a file on a floppy the last
attempt to upgrade

Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 438, in ?
    intf.run(todo, test = test)

You are getting read errors from your CD - it is most likely bad.
