Description andrew 1999-09-22 23:09:26 UTC
The install from a local FAT16 partition fails with an error
11 and aborts, with a message to safely reboot. The message
comes as soon as the swap partition is formatted and the
installer attempts to verify the install files. An attempt
to install from FTP on a LAN server with a RedHat/base and
RedHat/RPMS and all visible files below RedHat fails with an
error 13 after the / partition is formatted and the system
attempts to read the packages.
An attempt to do a workstation install, instead of custom,
erases ALL partitions and not just the Linux partitions (not
what the documentation claims should happen).
An attempt to install from ftp.nmt.edu proceeded to the
package download, but was so slow I had to quit before I
could finish.
What is missing on my local and local(ftp) install that I
don't see? Is my RAMDISK image faulty (most recent from
redhat.com, copyright says 1999)

Did you have problems with release 6.1 as well??  Please reopen this bug if you
are still seeing problems during installation.
