When you install in the GUI interface, the installer hangs after finnishing
copying files. If you try text mode, after the post install thinger comes
up, it tells you that an exception occurred and asks you to report it
here. you have three options at this point: OK, which restarts the
computer, "save", which saves a bunch of code to a floppy and then reboots,
and "debug" I do not know what that does exactly.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.insert boot disceset in A drive and Red hat linux cd 1 into cdrom drive.
2.Install in text mode any way you want.
3.wait for the program to finnish copying files.
Actual Results: I got an internal error, apperently somthing to do with
the root password, and no option exept to reboot, save or debug.
Expected Results: I should have been propted to make a boot diskesset, and
then to restart my computer. after which LiLo should have started
here is the string of code that got saved to my floppy.

This bug may only occur on an optiplex dell pc.
On a linux system, mount the CD and try this command:
rpm -K --nogpg /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/passwd*
I think the CD is bad.
