Description Brian "netdragon" Bober 2003-03-09 00:55:55 EST
Description of problem:
I got an exception during installation. I had no floppy, and therefore no way to
save it.

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

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get an exception
2. Try to save the information without a floppy
Actual results:
No dice

Expected results:
Ability to save it to the hard drive (if you are doing a fresh install) or to a
part of one of the partitions otherwise.

USB floppy drive. Otherwise one can goto VC2 and do what you need with
