I did try the install again with similar results.  It seems like it did not get 
as far in the install before abending, but it did produce the same error.
Comment 3 Matt Wilson 2001-02-14 13:26:44 EST
switch to Alt+F2 and attach the output of "df"
Comment 4 Alan Hoiland 2001-02-14 13:34:32 EST
What do you mean by "switch to Alt+F2 and attach the output of "df""?  Do you 
mean when the error screen appears press Alt+F2?  Will I see a new screen?  
Will DF become obvious?
Comment 5 Matt Wilson 2001-02-14 13:38:49 EST
Alt+F2 gives you a shell prompt.  The df command will show you the disk space
free on all mounted volumes.
Comment 6 Matt Wilson 2001-02-14 13:39:23 EST
(yes, do this when the error window appears)
Comment 7 Alan Hoiland 2001-02-15 12:50:42 EST
It appears I had a hardware problem!  I tried to install Red Hat again and this 
time it chugged for a _long_ time and completed the install.  But everytime I 
tried to boot, I got CRC and other I/O errors.  I swapped in a different hard 
drive and had completely different results.  The install went well and I can 
now access the system.

Thanks for your help!
