Description Jack 2001-02-26 00:36:47 UTC
I was performing a partitionless installation, on a Western Digital HDD 
with all requirements met...packages never began installing. I was using a 
CD i burned after dl'ing redhat linux7 ISO from the redhat FTP dl'ed two 
different ISO's for disc one two weeks apart. burned ISO's using two 
different burning utilities to and scanned both discs for errors (none 
found). This is the bug text:
