Description of problem:
Everytime i try to install rh8.0 on my server it crashes during the
installation. Here is the message generated.
An unhandled exception has occurred. This is most likely a bug. Please copy the
full text of this exception or save the crash dump to a floppy then file a
detailed bug report against anaconda at http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 694, in ?
intf.run(id, dispatch, configFileData)
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line
446, in run dispatch.gotoNext()
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.answer all questions about language and format the disk
3.begin the install
Actual Results: aborts
Expected Results: completes successfully
Please attach the error dump from the floppy you saved it to.
I did not send one to floppy so if that is needed, I will have to do the install
again to get it. Meanwhile here is some other info: when i first tried to
install several weeks ago I followed the normal install screens. This last time
I was instructed by you web support people to type in "linux nodma text" at the
prompt. During that install I received the error message I submitted earlier.
From previous attempts where I just followed the install screens it generated an
error message that said this:
The file /mnt/sysimage/var/tmp/Omni-0.7.0-6.i386rpm can not be opened.
It also mentions that it is probably a bug in the install cd--that a file is
missing that it needs.
I will make another trip to campus where the server is and get the floppy dump
and post it. Meanwhile my server can not be used. If there is anyway that I can
load rh8.0 meanwhile please let me know. I only need it for apache, ssh, and ftp
at this time.

My last attempt to install rh8.0 somehow worked. I must have checked different
packages to install. I am not sure which packages I had checked to install the
last 4 times but the error must be associated with a missing file in one of
