Description of Problem:
    While installing Redhat 7.1, when i got to the second disk, for some 
reason it couldn't mount it. So i had to reboot the computer. In any case, 
from then on setup would hang every time after i would select the 
installation configuration (Workstation, Server...).
To fix it i had to go into rescue mode and run fdisk to clear out all the 
partitions the previous setup created. After this the setup no longer hung.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
  Red Hat 7.1 Standard (The free one, whichever that is.)

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Instal as a server and reset the machine when it asks for the second CD.
2. Try to install it again, it hangs (or at least did on my box) after u 
choose what kind of installation u want.

Actual Results:

Expected Results:

Additional Information:
	I'd guess it has something to do with reading the partition 
information after u choose the installation type. But i'm no expert.

Anyways, just though I'd help you guys out.

I was unable to reproduce this behavior.  I did an install, and when prompted
for the second cd, I pressed Reset.  I rebooted, ran the install again, and was
able to view the partition table and continued the install with no problems. 
Resolving as 'worksforme'.  I don't know why your machine would have behaved
