I also have this bug regarding line 438.  I downloaded RedHat and made a boot 
disk.  The installation was going fine till this bug.  I am installing a 
partitionless system on my windows 98.  I searched the archives and they said 
that the FAT32 has to be less than 2047 MB.  I tried it at 1900 and it still 
wouldn't work.  I also downloaded the anaconda updates, but no luck.  What is 
the fix?

Comment 3 Need Real Name 2001-03-18 12:08:11 EST
I am having this problem as well.  I am installing to a Linux native partition, 
with Windows 2000 also present on the system.  I used Partition Magic to create 
all partitions.  I tried using the 20001009 fix, but it didn't help.  My 
dumpfile is a bit different from the one currently attached, so I am attaching 
it as well.  Please let me know when a fix is available.

Comment 5 Michael Fulbright 2001-03-21 14:51:25 EST
This error almost always means that either files are missing or are corrupted in
the install image on the hard drive. I would recommend pulling it down from a
different source, and making sure you use the 'binary' ftp option if necessary.
Comment 6 Need Real Name 2001-03-24 12:19:51 EST
I tried re-downloading the entire contents of the base and RPMS directories 
from a different server, but I am still receiving the same error.  The 
downloads have always been done in binary mode.
