Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2002-01-24 15:20:31 UTC
When the error occurs please hit cntl-alt-f4 and look for any 'read' or 'sense'
errors - I think your drive may be bad from the error message reported.

Thanks for your help.  The drive was a new refurbished unit.  Smart Start was 
able to create a Compaq configuration partition, but other areas of the drive 
were bad preventing the OS from successfully installing.  I have since replaced 
the drive and done a successful install.
