Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2002-11-26 05:55:35 EST
can you try 
linux mem=xxxM
as command on the very first screen (where xxx is 16Mbyte less than the amount
of memory you have)
Comment 2 marco 2002-11-26 06:17:38 EST
I have 2GB Ram (2048Mb) so i try
linux mem=2032M and the result are:

install exited abormal -- received signal 11
Ctrl Alt F3

(just the last one)
#modules to insert ide-cd
Ctrl Alt F4

Comment 3 marco 2002-12-09 08:59:27 EST
I have removed 1GB ram and now the RedHat 8.0 works perfect.
Comment 4 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 11:40:14 EDT
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
