Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
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,
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.
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.
