Comment 2 Prakash Purushotham 2001-08-17 10:38:40 EDT
Actually anaconda crashed after it went ahead with copying files, etc...
sometime when I was expecting it to ask me to insert a floppy for bootdisk
creation. I am trying to recreate this problem.

Comment 3 Prakash Purushotham 2001-08-19 23:56:47 EDT
Unable to reproduce, second install attempt went through fine.
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2001-08-21 13:54:15 EDT
I'm unable to reproduce this here...  if you still have the problem system at
hand, does the install.log show anything regarding problems installing the GRUB
