The CD test is not 100% perfect at catching problems that can occur during an
install.  I would recommend you try installing from ISOs on your HD instead of
using CDs to see if that works better.
Comment 3 Brian M. Sutin 2002-08-19 19:42:18 EDT

I suspect that the CD's are fine, because I found that I could install the
minimal installation and then keep trying to upgrade until all the packages
were installed.  Thus I conclude that no specific rpm on the CD is at fault.

You suggestion is impractical anyway because Redhat almost completely fills
the disk.


Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2002-08-22 16:07:24 EDT
There are numerous examples of this scenario.

If you purchased the CDs and are having problems you can speak to customer service.
