Description of problem:
I had a bad Disc 2 during install.  The graphical installer just kept looping 
with an error message about not being able to read one of the rpm's because of 
a missing file or bad media.  There was never an option to eject the CD to try 
a different one and the CD drive was locked -- I had to paperclip it to put 
another CD in.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get yourself a bad CD :)
2. Attempt install

Expected Results:  It should provide a dialog that gives you the option to 
eject the CD and try another or it should umount the CD when the error dialog 
comes up.

I believe we will be able to address this problem to some degree for the next

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2002-08-19 21:57:04 UTC
We now unmount the CD if you hit a problem so that you can change the CD or
clean it if needed
