Installation of Fisher to an SMP Pentium III with a DriverUpdateDisk 
crashes just prior to installation complete.  The failure occurs prior to 
the update of the boot sector but after disk formatting and installation 
of all packages. 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install using linux dd (or text dd)
2. Insert driver update disk
3. Proceed with installation.  	

Actual Results:  Driver update disk inserted and driver loaded 
(sym53c8xx). Disk(s) formatted and packages installed. Crash occurred 
after all packages loaded but prior to boot sector update.  (Remark: This 
was a re-installation. On a reboot, LILO came up and the old boot options 
were available.  Of course, were unable to boot because the old 
installation had been destroyed.)

Expected Results:  Installation would complete. Driver disk was customized 
for Fisher - used the same tool to generate disk as that for Red Hat 7.0 
(with the kernel specific changes that were necessary).


Please see end.  The directory kernel/driversscsi  is unusual. Would 
expect kernel/drivers/scsi.  Did a character get dropped?
