Description tristan.greaves 1999-05-12 07:53:06 EDT
Even on disks formatted under Windows NT, there have been
occasions when the Redhat 6.0 install has given the
message "Boot failed" while in the "Loading vmlinuz..."

Using another disk, or re-formatting and rawriting again
will fix the problem.  It appears something is being very
sensitive, so it would be nice if rawrite had an option to
verify that an image has been correctly written to disk.
