Description Des Hickey 2003-02-03 00:02:52 UTC
Description of problem:

   I bought the SAMS book Red Hat Linux 8 Unleahed today and when I attempted 
to load Linux it died and generated this logfile, which it told me to send to 
you. It has died on me four times, each time on the first or second file of 
the second disk. Putting th disk in my other (Windows XP ) machine, I can read 
the disk and see all the RPM files correctly. 
   The machine is only 2 months old, with 40GB disk and 512MB ram, so no 
shortage of resources. I reduced the size of the installation (I ws using 
custom install) and on the final run it only had 20 packages of 488 to load 
(44 M of 1098 M, 23 secs of 10 minutes) but it still died
- Des Hickey (London, UK)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Linux 8.0

How reproducible: Fails every time, not long after Disk 2 (of 2) is added

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put in Disk 2
2. Wait a few seconds (no more than 60)
3. Disk Read fails and installations just dies and reboots. No option to 
ignore and go on
Actual results: Unhandled exception and log file generated

Expected results:
