Description Terry Lemons 2003-03-12 02:43:03 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows 98; T312461; .NET CLR 

Description of problem:

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.using CDs provided in 'Red Hat Linux 8 Bible', perform a 'linux text' 
2.make the obvious selections
3.after the last package is installed and the boot floppy is being created, 
anaconda aborts.


Actual Results:  I rebooted and received the error 'GRUB Read Error'

Expected Results:  I expected that the installation would create the boot 
floppy, would reboot, and GRUB would be able to boot RHL 8.0.

Additional info:

I'm trying to install this on a Digital Equipment Corporation Venturis PC.  
This system uses a Phoenix Technologies Ltd. BIOS dated 01/15/98.  Though the 
BIOS does include a setting for LBA, I wonder how complete the implementation 
is . . . .

Red Hat Linux 8.0 requires a Pentium processor or newer.

Thanks for the reply.

I spent 1/2 an hour searching www.redhat.com, but can't find information on Red 
Hat's prior releases?  Do any Red Hat distributions support 80486 processors?  
If so, from where can I download them?

I'm not sure if it's officially supported, but Red Hat Linux 7.3 is the last
version that shipped with an i386 kernel/glibc.
