Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2001-02-25 16:16:25 UTC
Just off chance, did you choose to delete the partition your are installing
from?

Comment 2 Need Real Name 2001-02-26 02:09:49 UTC
NO.  I did not try to delete the partition with the files.  I chose to manually 
partition hard drive and left the dos partition with the 7.0 files alone.  I 
did delete other partitions.  I also tried every other combination possible.  I 
even tried having the installation files on a different drive.

Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2001-02-27 17:18:23 UTC
This error usually occurs when a file in the hard drive image your are
installing from is corrupted or missing, in this case the MAKEDEV package.

I would recommend grabbing the files again, from a different source perhaps.
