How did you boot into the installation of this system?
Comment 3 Raston Warrior 2002-03-12 11:42:14 EST
The installation was started from CD, which was a 7.2 ISO image that was 
downloaded and cooked into bootable media.  This media was used on several 
other workstation installations, but this was the first laptop attempt.  During 
installation, I did not select 'laptop' for installation type, but 
rather 'custom'.

There are errors decompressing from the stage2 as well as errors mentioned
regarding reading from the CD.  Is this a burned CD?  If so, does the cdrom
drive in this laptop generally do well with burned cds (mine I know doesn't :-)
Comment 5 Raston Warrior 2002-03-13 17:19:03 EST
Yes, this is a burned CD from a downloaded ISO.  While I'm careful to keep them 
clean and it's never had a problem before, between the errors you found in the 
dump data, your experience with your CD drive and the fact that I couldn't 
reproduce it, it seems likely that it was a fluke between the CD and the 
drive.  I appreciate your time to diagnose. :)
