Why did you have to copy the disk to the hard drive before you did the install?
 Seems like running it off the cd would be easier.

Re your question - maybe I wasn't clear - I tried it both ways.

Comment 4 Matt Wilson 2001-07-13 06:33:28 UTC
please verify the ISO images md5sums with those on our ftp site.

Comment 5 Brent Fox 2001-07-25 16:27:34 UTC
I think that you have a bad ISO image.  If you redownload the images and you
still see the problem, please reopen this bug.
