From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR

Description of problem:
Crashed after I chose YES on Linux recovery disk creation. Received some 
kernel warning before it asked me if I want to create a recovery disk.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Begin installing Anaconda
2. Installed all the packages
3. Get some warning (didn't write down the message, sorry)
4. Get a message about recovery disk creation
5. Choose yes

Actual Results:  Crashed with option to save crash dump to floppy

Expected Results:  Should have created a Linux recovery boot floppy

Additional info:

Could be related to inability to format the floppy or selection of wrong 
combination of packages to install

What processor is in this system?

Also, you need a minimum of 64M to install Red Hat Linux.

This is 586/133 with 28 meg of ram system, I don't need to run GUI. The 
warning message I got right before it crashed was "No kernel packages were 
installed on your system. Your boot loader configuration will not be 
changed".  I am sure that I selected to install the boot kernel.

Comment 4 Alec Meyman 2002-11-07 05:23:49 UTC
When package dependencies are checked this message is shown after every 
package check "requires kernel which we don't have".  I chose the Server 
package configuration and then added some more packages. Why does it not 
install the kernel? Recreated this whole thing 3 times.

Comment 5 Michael Fulbright 2002-11-11 15:56:37 UTC
Minimum requirements are a Pentium class processor and 64M of RAM.
