Description Computron 2001-10-23 11:24:09 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
Installer comes up with an error soon after setting up the partitions.  
Similar or same crash occurs on all three of my friend's systems (Desktop 
and Portable). 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select workstation installation for my Gateway Solo 9500 (portable)
2. Select mostly default options
3. Setup hard drive partitions.
4. Click next and error will occur with anaconda.

Actual Results:  The error came up and wouldn't allow me to continue.  
Saved report to floppy.  Rebooted system and the Windows 2000 portion of 
the hard drive wouldn't boot up.  To fix my boot problem I went into 
C:\Boot.ini and had to change partition(2)\WINNT to partition(1)\WINNT.

ISO images were downloaded from http://www.linuxiso.org

I'm pretty sure your ISO images were corrupted during the download.  Can you
check the md5sums on them to make sure they are not corrupted?

It appears to have been a bad CD-RW burn.  Tried FTP install and it works 
great.  Also re-burned a CD-RW and that works now too.  Thanks for your time.
