I own a IBM Thinkpad 755CSE with 40 MB RAM, 800 MB HD and a 3.5 floppy
drive. I used my Micro-Solutions Backpack external CD ROM player to load
Red Hat 7.0. I used the driver image from Mirco Solutions to load with.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install as normal using the driver file from Micro-Solutions for their
external CD ROM players.
2.Do a custom install.
3.Install only X Windows and KDE.
4.Error occurs after all packages have been copied.
Actual Results: Anaconda error message after all packages are installed
and attempts to go on to next step of install process
Expected Results: Continuation of install process.
Traceback (innermost last):

Yes, this is a known issue. Red Hat Linux 7.0 did not have the ability to boot
off of pcmcia cdrom drives. This has been fixed in Red Hat Linux 7.1. Thanks
for your report.
