Description of problem:
I am installing Linux Redhat 7.2 professional on Dell laptop (pentium 166Mhz)  (using the laptop option)
 and the install fails in the same place.  DEBUG information is included.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start install
2.Wait for crash

Actual Results:  I get a crash and debug information

Expected Results:  Installer should have eventually prompted me for the second CD, but it failed 3/4 into the first CD install.
This only happens on the Dell Laptop.  It installed OK on an IBM desktop system.
Dell Latitude LXPi CD M166ST

Additional info:

I have a debug file, and will attach it.

Not a package issue.

This looks like you have bad media.  If you downloaded the ISO images and burned
the images yourself, please verify the MD5sums against those provided on our FTP
site.  If these are from the boxed product, please contact support about
receiving replacement disks.
