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):
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
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.
