I am installing Red Hat Linux 7.0 on a Fat 32 partition.  After the 
formatting process of the installation an exceptional error occurs.  Then 
a box appears asking me to save the error to a floppy and enter it here.  
This is was saved on the floppy. (I am new to linux so don't get mad when 
I don't know what I am talking about)

ToDo object:


Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Start text installation process. If the hardware could make a 
difference I am using a geforce video and I chose not to install my 
network card.  
2.  I chose to install on a partition containing my old windows 95 on my 
first hard drive.
3.  I chose to install all apps/programs on the disc.  Then linux starts 
to install until the end of the formatting process then I get the bug.

Actual Results:  The linux installation restarted my system.

Expected Results:  Linux should have installed properly.

I would really like to get red hat to work on my system if you could 
please help me with my bug.
