Description Alister 2002-11-01 04:21:33 UTC
Description of Problem:
During installation of RedHat 8.0 onto a Windows 2000 Workstation machine 
running Connectix' VirtualPC 5.1, the installer reported that the file for the 
GNOME Display Manager (gdm- was corrupt. The installer offered to 
dump the installation report onto a floppy disk (this was done, but I don't 
seem to be able to attach files to this report ... so if you want this dump, 
please email me).  After dumping the installation report, the installer 
informed me that this was a fatal error, and the installation died (this was 
about 65% of the way through the installation).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
GNOME Display Manager (gdm-

Additional Information:
