Description Andre 2001-09-28 10:51:39 EDT
Description of Problem:

Linux 7.1 would stop installation process after formatting 
appropriate file systems. The error that it produced will be (hopefully)
attached below.

How Reproducible: every time. The only way I could get 7.1
to install was to upgrade from 6.2, that is it would not format
the hard drive. However, in this case 7.1 was corrupting the hard
drive during installation, and after the affected file systems
would be repaired, some of the library files would be corrupted, nad
the system would be in an unworkable state, to the point where
even root could not log in.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start installing Linux 7.1 in either text, graphic, or expert mode

Actual Results:

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
