install type: custom, install everything
mouse type: ps/2 2 button, emulate 3 buttons YES
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2002-02-19 18:34:57 EST
And it's completely reproducible (ie if you run the install again does it
continue to happen)?

Also, you might try not using expert since expert provides very little differing

[Bug 59925] Changed Status - install fail on mouse device
20 Feb 2002 09:38:31 +0800	
Thanks for your new comments.

Now I have more serious trouble, the install is hanging up part way through
at random positions while installing the packages, so I can't get back to
the end again at the moment to further reproduce the mouse problem.

The reason I'm using expert mode is that if I use standard mode, the GUI
goes mostly black early in the process, with buttons highlighting yellow as
you float over them with the mouse).  I've found that if I use expert mode
that this does not happen (that part is definitely 100% reproducible).

Can you advise if linear mode should be used for a Seagate ST15150N SCSI

This is sound a lot like you have a bad CD or a dodgy CD-ROM drive.  You might
try booting with 'linux ide=nodma nofb lowres'.  Expert mode has nothing to do
at all with the X setup, so that just sounds even more like CD problems.  As to
linear mode, you generally want linear unless your drive is more than about 7
years old, which is why we finally removed the check box in Red Hat Linux 7.2
