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):

How reproducible:

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

Additional info:

This is what I get displayed after the failure............

Comment 2 Need Real Name 2002-04-26 12:06:34 EDT
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 
worked fine.
My appologies.............
