What are the exact steps to reproduce this issue?
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2001-03-26 16:34:40 EST
The exact steps to reproduce are as follows:

1.  Create new boot disk
2.  Create update-disk image diskette
3.  Begin install with linux updates option
4.  Insert updates disk when prompted
5.  Anaconda begins loading and the aforementioned error is reproduced.

Subsequently, I have been able to install version 6.3 on this same machine but 
I am still unable to install 7.0.

If may be possible the update disk was corrupted on download, or the floppy is
bad. Please try creating it again from scratch on a different floppy.
