Comment 2 Brent Fox 2001-11-08 11:54:01 EST
I think you have a bad cd.  The kernel error messages say:

<4>hdd: irq timeout: status=0xd0 { Busy }
<4>hdd: ATAPI reset complete
<4>hdd: irq timeout: status=0xc0 { Busy }
<4>hdd: ATAPI reset complete
<4>hdd: irq timeout: status=0xc0 { Busy }
<4>end_request: I/O error, dev 16:40 (hdd), sector 993468
<4>hdd: cdrom_decode_status: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
<4>hdd: cdrom_decode_status: error=0x30

Which leads me to believe that the cdrom is damaged somehow.  This is a dupe of
bug #55693.

If this is a bad CD-rom disc how can I get a replacement for just the one or 
does the whole package need to come back. I am unable to return it to the 
retail store since their return policy time has expired. Any information will 
be grately appreciated.
Comment 4 Brent Fox 2001-11-08 16:19:52 EST
I see that your cdrom is device "hdd".  Yet it doesn't look like there is a
device "hdc".  Is the cdrom drive set to "Master" on the drive jumpers?  It
looks like it might be set to "Slave" on the secondary IDE bus and that there
might be no "Master" device.  This could be causing the trouble.

Thanks for pointing out the Master/Slave issue. After trying to adjust that 
CDRom drive and make it a Master ( failed miserably), I installed another one 
and it took as a Master and subsequently I was able to install 7.2 completely. 
Crisis contained. Thaks again.

Ok.  I'm glad things are working now.  Thanks for your report.
