I downloaded the latest software off the Redhat web site this weekend. I 
am unsure of the Fisher version - I had to guess at that.  Anyhow, I am 
booting off a floppy, I am loading off a hard drive and I get to this 
point in the install and it dumps.  This is the code that is spewed out - 
if this happens to be an easy solve, please accept my deepest gratitude 
since I have looked through everything I can get my browser on and and I 
can't seem to find a good fix. The installer tells me to post the message 
but I can't seem to find anyone else with the same problem. Hell - I'm off 
to go get a beer. I need it at this point!
Late.
