Description of problem:
I've tried graphics, text & expert/text. These all hang after entering or
skipping the add user forms.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start install from bootable CD.
2. Choose (any?) install mode & proceed to file loading
3. Hangs with the error messages enclosed.
I'm using a K7VZA mainboard with an AMD DURON 750 cpu. I have 64Meg of
PC100 SDRAM installed. The BIOS is correctly set for PC100 and reports the
processor corectly set for 750Mhz. This cpu/motherboard set also fails to
load Windows 95. However, both RedHat Linux and Windows 95 run correctly if
installed on another machine and the hard drive is moved to this machine,
provided the Windows 95 AMD patch has been installed.

It really sounds like some hareware troubles to me.
Does booting the installer with 'linux ide=nodma' help any?
