Description of problem:

until the aic7xx module loads.  The system give me the following error
message "failed to read /module/module-info..Install exited abnormally and
the system shuts down. (I note that the file module-info is in the /boot/
directory).   I have 
read all the other aic7xx bugzilla and have tried expert mode noprobe.  It

How reproducible:

abnormally" after system loads aic7xxx module

Expected Results:  installation 

Additional info:

i note that  module-config is actually in /boot/ directory

The above mentioned installation disks were created by downloading the iso 
images and burning cds.  Identical results were obtain either under windows or 
linux.  However upon testing the cds the files in the image subdirectories were 
not readable under any system even as hex files.  When I purchased the redhat 
package at the computer store it loaded and works fine.  I still don't  know 
why the iso images that were downloaded are bad.  The cd burner works fine
