What type of installation is this and how did you start the installation?
Comment 3 don cox 2002-01-04 15:00:03 EST
I started the installation by inserting my CD rom and ipl from the cd rom.  I
then choose new installation using the GUI.  I choose english, two button mouse,
104 pc keyboard.  I then choose server as the type of installation. I then
choose various packages.  The process started to copy the various packages.
Comment 4 don cox 2002-01-04 17:49:22 EST
I have managed to stop the rpm.error.  This machine had a virus checking
capability in its BIOS.  After disabling it, I no longer get the rpm.error.
