How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Save valhalla iso images to a linux directory (i.e. /root/rhftp) and mount the
file in that directory.
2.Start the installation using a floppy with boot.img on it.
3.proceed through install steps upto configure users, press return and exception

Actual Results:  Exception occurs as described in description.

Expected Results:  The installation of Red Hat Linux 7.3 should have proceeded.

Additional info:

After saving the valhalla iso image files to /root/rhftp.  I had difficulting
getting the install interface to recognize that they were there.  Even after
mount -o loop -t iso9660 valhalla-i386-disc1.iso /root/rhftp
After executing this command, /etc/mtab file listed this as a mount point, but
then after rebooting the system /etc/mtab did not recognize..
Finally, the install interface found the iso images somehow, but the install
only proceeded to the point of the exception described above.

Are you trying to upgrade a Mandrake Linux installation to Red Hat Linux using
the 'upgrade' option in the Red Hat Linux installer?
