Description of problem:
Right after the installer is done loading all the packages and starts whatever
it does after that, I get an unhandled exception, something during traceback.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot from image floppy
Actual Results: install fails after loading packages and and gives me the
option to debug or copy the error data to a floppy.
Expected Results: Install finishes
I have a feeling this could be related to a hard drive capacity problem.
I am installing on a Compaq Deskpro 2000,which has a 10GB maxtor HD installed in it.

This is what copied to a floppy after my unhandled exception
Are these CDs you burned yourself? If so, do the md5sums match those on our ftp
Yes, these are CD's that I burned myself, unfortunately I did not check the
images before I burned them and I also deleted them. I will download them
again, check them, burn them and try the reinstall again. Any chance that if I
created an ISO image from my CD's that they would be the same?
Do you mean if you dd the ISO image off the CD?
I wouldn't really recommend trying that however.
Let us know if your new download works better.
BTW, you can install from harddrive if you download the ISO images into a
directory on an existing partition. That way you don't have to burn CDs.
