Well, I cannot proceed any further in the installation process because of an IO
Error... How to reproduce it? Well, I simply install as a dual boot system
(the first OS installed was Windows 2000) and after setting up the accounts, I
get that IO Error... I have attached the dump it has saved on a floppy disk...

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Windows 2000
2.Start up Linux's install
3.Install as a workstation
