Description of Problem:
I got the latest anaconda update

you may safely reboot your system
How Reproducible: 2/2
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download updatedisk-20001009.img
2. using fawrite, create update disk
3. boot from installation disk using "linux updates"
As described above
Install should continue normally
I have a Dell Dimensions X266 and have recently installed a slide drive
which I made the master. The drive is Comp-USA by Maxtor, 3.5" EIDE
I am installing Linux at home as a learning experience and am willing to
do a re-install in the next week or so if that would help.
I'm a little confused. The disk you downloaded is an update for Red Hat Linux
7.0, but the bug report is filed against 7.1. Did you mean to file the bug
under 7.0 or were you trying to use the 7.0 updates disk with 7.1 (that won't work)?
