Description John M. Allar 2001-04-18 22:04:52 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.0; Windows 95; AT&T WNS5.0 
IE5.0.01; AT&T WNS5.2)

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.

Reproducible: Always
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):
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 438, in ?
    intf.run(todo, test = test)
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 1030, in 
    rc = apply (step[1](), step[2])

Comment 1 Brent Fox 2001-04-19 15:52:55 EDT
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.
