Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run Setup from diskette
2. Load CD Rom
3. Bug always occurs when it attempts to read packages

Actual Results:  The bug window opens with the info inserted above into 

Expected Results:  to install RedHat without crashing

The system has two UW160 Harddrives, and we were also attempting to 
install RAID 1 partitions.  The same bug occurs without using RAID1 
(standard partitions)

Please check VC3 and VC4 (cntl-alt-f3 and -f4) when this occurs to see if there
are any read errors reported.

This has to be because of a bad CD.
Comment 2 9 Net Avenue Deutschland 2001-03-06 15:25:09 EST
I do not believe it is the CD ROM.  We have used the CD to update or install 
other systems.  It does read the CDROM to load the SCSI Drivers for the Adaptec 
160 Card.

I attempted to check VC3 and VC4, but before I could capture anything, the 
system rebooted (this time the bugzilla window did not open).

Problem was with Controller Card.  SORRY!
