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

Crash dump from installation of Linux 8.0
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.
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.
Minimum requirements are a Pentium class processor and 64M of RAM.
