Had problem with anaconda detecting floppyDrive booted up and used the 
suggested fisher update disk new problem occured.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot up on RH Fisher CD
2. Type in linux updates at boot prompt
3. let the install start

Actual Results:  crash

Had problems with the floppydrive not found by anaconda so followed 
instructions for it according to the 25514 bug report. For complete 
discription of my hardware setup see bug 26327.

Got the fisher-upddisk.img and used it as instructed.

Traceback (innermost last):

   extraModules = extraModules, pcicController = pcicController)
 File "tmp/updates/todo.py", line 561, in __init__ 
AttributeError: setClass
install exited abnormally
and we are getting shut down.

This time i get a setClass error instead of floppyDrive error

It appears that the updates image may be corrupted.

Please mount the floppy (under linux) and run this command:

md5sum /mnt/floppy/todo.py

You should see it output:

Turned out the floppy had bad tracks on it. 

Did a new floppy and it worked fine. Sorry for being stupid and consume 
valuable time.
Got Fisher installed now. time to play.
