I have the same problem..the bug appears also if you want to use fdisk or 
automatic partion. it's also impossible to use the 8.0 disk 1 to upgrade a 
previous redhat installation..it crashes anyway...
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2002-10-14 11:05:20 EDT
You appear to be booting with the Red Hat Linux 7.1 kernel.  Please use the
provided boot images for Red Hat Linux 8.0 to install that release.
Comment 4 Need Real Name 2002-10-21 07:57:59 EDT
Thank you for your accurate advice. I thought that I made a boot floppy from 8.0
!Hboot.img!I file. But, I made again a boot floppy more carefully than the first
time, so I can successfully install the Red Hat Linux 8.0 to my machine.
Probably, the process to make boot floppy at the first time was inappropriate.
