Description of Problem:
I was installing Personal Edition of Redhat 7.3 on a desktop machine. During
the process on install disk # 2 I got an error message that said the system
crashed most likely due to a bug and I should report it. I saved the error
report on a disk and will be attaching it.

Error report on crash during installation
Your CD appears to be bad from looking at the errors in the log.
The machine that crashed during installation giving me the bug report was a
Pentium II 266 mz with 176 mgs of RAM.
I successfully installed with the same CDs on two other machines a Gateway
laptop Pentium III 1.1 Gz with 256 mgs of RAM and a desktop P4 1.8 Gz with 512
mgs of RAM after the installation failure on the P II.
Is it possible that the P II just is not enough machine to handle Red Hat 7.3?
I might also mention that I successfully installed Mandrake Linux 8.0 on the P
II machine both before and after 4 unsuccessful attempts at installing the Red
Hat 7.3 on it. On the 5th try using the custom installation option and
installing only Gnome desktop I made it through the installation without any
errors. However, when the machine rebooted it came up to Gnome's login screen
and locked up. I rebooted it 3 times and each time it locked up so I
reinstalled the Mandrake on that machine.
The installation went smooth without any errors on both the P III laptop and
the P4 desktop.
