I am following SAM's Teach Yourself Red Hat Linux (7.0.1) and get an 
exceptional error during installation (about 60% through 'creating 
loopback file system')

file "nav/tmp/anaconda - 7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress-gui.py", line 
20 in run
rc=self.todo doinstall()
file "/var/tmp/anaconda - 7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py/" line 1469 in 
selffstab.py line 645 in makefilesystems (self.progresswindow,-
file "isys.py" line 78 in ddfile
os.write (fd,buf)

there are more error messages but I can't see them because although the
mouse still moves none of the window buttons work !

I have the following setup (in Windows terms)

disk one - drive C Windows 98
disk two - drive D Win NT server
disk two - drive E Win XP
disk two - drive F FAT32 partition 10gb for my new Linux

I have tried every combination using custom and workgroup install options.
I also correctly followed the instructions for setting up 
a 'partitionless' installation
labelling '/' during disk druid.

An odd thing is that the LILO configuration screen didn't appaear as 
mentioned in the SAM's book.

Any ideas ?
