Description of problem:
after entering all options, and pressing 'continue' to begin the actual
installation, an error msg dialog box appears that offers option to create a
floppy and submit that to Bugzilla.
I'm attaching the resulting text file.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.reboot computer with RH Binary CD 1 of 2
2.select custom installation
I had previously upgraded from 6.1 to 7.1 with only one 9GB SCSI drive. Had
some file space issues that I 'worked around' by deselecting a number of
packages during the upgrade.
I recently added a second SCSI hard drive. I partitioned it with fdisk and was
able to format and mount all the partitions and copy directories and files
between disks, so the disk seems OK.
My problem occured when I attempted to perform a new install (custom
installation). I've gone thru the same motions three times with the same
failure each time.

Are you reformatting your partitions when you are doing this new install?
Yes, after using Druid to set mount points, I checked all the partitions for
formating on the following setup screen.
Since submitting the bug report, I tried disconnecting the second drive and
managed a successful new install on just the original drive. Next, I'm going
to experiment with two drives again.
Do you happen to know if you are using the drive select feature of your IDE drives?
