Description sandine 1999-10-15 14:19:36 EDT
Selected both "upgrade" and "custom install", and the setup
program loads stage2.img and HANGS while "verifying
packages" ("exception occurred"; I then have a choice to
"debug" or "ok".  "ok" then shuts down and tells me that I
may reboot my machine; I don't know what to do with
"debug").  Have "rpm -K"'d my RedHat/RPMS directory and all
is well there; have redownloaded and rewritten boot.img
using both "dd" in Redhat 6.0 and "rawrite.exe" in msdos and
had the same problem.

Please submit the details of the exception that you are getting.  Especially the
end of the traceback as that shows where the problem actually occurred as well
as what the problem is.
