Following Custom System installation instructions in "Sam's Teach Yourself 
Red Hat Linux" using the included Red Hat 7.0 disks.
Installer crashed.  Pop-up window said it was probably a bug and submit 
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.

Comment 3 Bill McGonigal 2001-02-27 19:32:49 UTC
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!)
