Description of problem:
WHen I try install on my P2 400 with 64 MB of RAM and a 20 GB HD. I get 
can seem to make it into the the actual install part before I get the 
attached error in text mode. The funny part is that I only get the error 
if I do it in text mode if I do it in the redhat GUI I stall at the white 
red hat slash screen BUT if I don't have my HD attached to the box I won't 
get that stall. I looked up the error code in the knowleage base but the 
closest thing said I was setting the / directory above 2,047 MB. I even 
tried setting the / partition down to 500 MB

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Are these cd's that you made yourself?  I have a feeling that they may be
corrupted.  When the installer crashes, press <Ctrl><Alt><F4> and see if there
are any error messages related to the cdrom.

I discovered it was the CD-ROM that was having the issue. I put in a diffrent 
CD-ROM and worked like a charm...sorry to bother you.

No bother at all.  Glad to know things are working now.  The majority of bug
reports we get are bad cds that people have burned.
