Description of problem:
I'm trying to install Redhat Beta (Phoebe-re0214.Beta5-RC6-i386).  I created a 
boot disk and after selecting either graphical mode or text mode to install 
with, the boot disk fails.  It happens while it's loading initrd.img.  It fails 
with this message, "Boot failed: please change disks and press a key to 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a boot disk from bootdisk.img using dd if=bootdisk.img of=/dev/fd0
2. Boot the system with the boot disk
3. Select either graphical or text install method


Actual Results:  While loading initrd.img, the install fails with this 
message, "Boot failed: please change disks and press a key to continue."

Expected Results:  Setup for Redhat Beta continues

Additional info:
This bug probably shouldn't be assigned to setup, but I'm not sure where to 
assign it to.  The list of places to assign bugs is too long and vague.

You have a bad floppy disk.  Try again with another floppy and you shouldn't
have a problem.
