Description of problem:
During Installation, a message "uncaught exception" was displayed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install with my Creative 48Xmx CDrom reader
Actual Results: Install process goes a little ways through and comes up with
the same message. Changed CDRom reader and it installs fine.
Expected Results: Message should not have been displayed (no message shown
when installing with a different CDrom)
I had similar problems while trying to install Redhat 7.3 (file kjots). So I
tried installing 8.0 (checked the CD's with the testing program available
during install and all were ok).
I repeated the install process 3 times and had the same thing happen each time.
I will supply the file anacdump.txt and my CDrom reader (I don't want it
anymore) if needed ( send email:firstname.lastname@example.org)

File written to disk by anaconda
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.
