Looks like problem of system-config-boot or anaconda. For now changing component
on system-config-boot.
Comment 5 Harald Hoyer 2008-05-16 06:30:37 EDT
definitely anaconda
Comment 6 Chris Lumens 2008-05-16 10:45:15 EDT
Can you please attach /tmp/anaconda.log and /tmp/syslog to this bug report? 
Also are there any unusual error messages on tty3 or tty4?  Thanks.

The information we've requested above is required in order to review this problem report further and diagnose or fix the issue if it is still present.  Since it has been thirty days or more since we first requested additional information, we're assuming the problem is either no longer present in the current RHEL release, or that there is no longer any interest in tracking the problem.

Setting status to "CLOSED: INSUFFICIENT_DATA".  If you still experience this problem after updating to our latest RHEL release and can provide the information previously requested, please feel free to reopen the bug report.

Thank you in advance.
