Description Tom 2003-03-21 19:44:08 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

Description of problem:
Using RedHat Linux 8.0, I am using kickstart on a floppy boot disk to do a 
hands-free boot from an ftp server.  The image is discovered and shortly after 
downloading begins, it stops, shows a Traceback where the last call was:

File "/usr/bin/anaconda" line 660 in ?

It then shows:

KeyError: 32
install exited abnormally.
You may safely reboot your system.

I cannot find any information on KeyError: 32.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot using kickstart on a floppy
2. Using ks configurator, point to ftp server where boot images are


Actual Results:  Image install hangs.

Expected Results:  Image would install RedHat 8 on drive.

Additional info:

All files are from RedHat 8.0 cd.  I used the kickstart configurator to build 
the kickstart file.

Please attach the kickstart config file you are using (edit out any private data
like passwords first).
