Comment 2 Prakash Purushotham 2001-08-17 14:38:40 UTC
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 2001-08-20 03:56:47 UTC
Unable to reproduce, second install attempt went through fine.

Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2001-08-21 17:54:15 UTC
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
