I've had this bug in the instalation of LINUX and some people advised
me to check the RPMS directory for anny files not ending with .RPM
I dis that and foun an log file from my FTP prog. deleted the file
and tryed the install agean, it still did'nt work ( for some other
people this did work !!) Then I compared the files in that dir with
the files on the FTP site and found out that a file called HOWTO-
corean..... something was'nt completly downloaded. I redownloaded
this file and the install worked well !! so check your RPMS dir, it
should be 555.198.893 bytes large, if it is'nt check your RPM files !!
