Were you upgrading or installing?
Comment 3 Anthony Uribe 2001-05-07 21:55:13 EDT
I was installing Red Hat linux 7.0 on a 233 pentium 2 processor with an 
internal 100mb zip drive, 36x cd-rom, and a 2.6 gig harddrive.
Comment 4 Brent Fox 2001-05-08 14:22:38 EDT
Ok, for some reason the traceback that I see indicates that the installer was
trying to perform an upgrade instead of an install.  Something may be wrong with
your cd.  Can you look on VC3 and VC4 and see if there are any error messages?
