Description of problem:
I have tried (several times) to instal Redhat 7.2, I kept getting an error and
it would terminate the install. Sometimes I would be able to select the
packages, sometimes, I would only get to the network configuration. On
occassion, I have made it to a point where it would start to install (and even
made it about half way through) and it would then crash. Only once have I
actually got the error message (directing me to bugzilla) and giving me the
text dump. (see below). I have tried installing using the graphical interface
and also using the Textual interface. I do seem to get further along with the
Text install, however ultimately it still crashes (it seems like it's a point
when it tries to actually start up X)
For the record:
*I have tried installing on this system with burned CD-R's (copies of
ORIGIANLS) and I have tried it with the originals. Both sets were used on other
systems without incident.
*The CD ROM Drive was swapped and made no difference (it is new and so is the
one I swapped it with).
*I even tried a new Hard drive.
*The system runs fine if I install RedHat 7.0
*The system is a PII 350 with 128 MB SD RAM with an ATI Mach 64 video card.

Actual Results: Although I get the same type of error, I rarely actually get
an opportunity to save the text dump.

Are you choosing to format the partitions you are installing to?
Yes I formatted the partions. I have tried multiple ways. Letting RH determine
the layout, manually configuring. Checking for bad blocks or not. Everytime,
however the drive(s) was/were formatted.
Could you please try with the 7.3 release, we have fixed an issue that was
similar to yours.
I have tried several attempts to download 7.3 but to no avail. Additionally, I
can't even find it in the stores. However, I have tried something else. I did
replace the RAM. It seems that, although my RAM is good, it's not good enough.
The new RAM (PNY) is working fine with this motherboard and I was able to
instal 7.2 on it. I put the old RAM back in, and bugs came back (even after it
was already installed.) So I think I have found the problem.
Good to hear its working.
