Description of problem:
I am installing this system (redhat linux 7.0) on a system which has a MAXTOR
7400 40 gig drive on it. I am using half the drive for windows and want to use
the rest for linux. I have installed this package on this system before and
everything went fine, so I suspect the drive has something to do with it.
The system gave me an option to write the system state to floppy and I did ,but
what do I do with it?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.do the install , when you get to the 'loading packages' (the computer riped
up with a guy inside I get this message.
Actual Results: The system shuts down, and then restarts. Since there is no
operating system it just starts again.
Expected Results: I should be running linux
This is what I get displayed after the failure............
Traceback (innermost last):

This is what the install said to "save to Floppy"
Very sorry, my fault (I guess), My wife came hiome and said that I needed to
format the disk, with 'block checking' .. when that was selected everything
