Full output from crash saved to floppy during installation
An update disk for Red Hat Linux 8.0 is available at
http://people.redhat.com/~katzj/8.0-cdread.img that should correct this problem.
If you download this image and place it on a floppy disk (using dd or rawrite
as with a boot disk), and then boot with 'linux updates' from the syslinux
prompt, you will be prompted to provide this disk.
