1. Run installer again
Following Custom System installation instructions in "Sam's Teach Yourself
Red Hat Linux" using the included Red Hat 7.0 disks.

information to Bugzilla. Saved error info to floppy.

The traceback indicates you chose not to format the '/' partition. Please try
again and format the '/' partition and see if it works.
Re-ran install in "Workstation" rather than with the "Custom" option.
Able to bring up Red Hat.
Bug Report should be closed.
(I'm really impressed with the quick response I got!)
