Comment 1 Brent Fox 2001-05-31 15:42:39 EDT
I think that something is corrupted with your installation media.  Did you
download it?  This looks like a dupe of bug #33145
Comment 2 Tom Davis 2001-06-01 07:37:46 EDT
This is from original media out of the box. It does appear that it is platform 
specific though as I successfully loaded it on a Dell laptop.
Comment 3 Brent Fox 2001-06-04 13:34:59 EDT
Can you look on VC3 and VC4 and see if there are any error messages?  We have
seen some hardware specific problems accessing some devices on the IDE bus.  

Also, try booting the install with 'linux ide=nodma' and see if that helps at all.
