There is insufficient information here to guess what the problem is.

Have you mediachecked the installation media using the 'mediacheck' option?

Comment 2 Walt Dexter 2003-03-24 22:05:26 UTC
I have not, but this is a set of offical RedHat disks I purchased, not ones I 
burned myself.

I thought I'd attached the anaconda trace file but I don't see it up there. 
I'll get it attached later today.

It's still installing, but I'd say you were pretty close when you asked if I'd 
mediacheck-ed the disks. The disks are fine, but it looks like my CD-ROM drive 
was bad; I "borrowed" one from another system and it's charging along great.

This is actually a second system I'm installing on now; I had thought there was 
some problem with the old HP Pavilion I had - they are kind of quirky - and got 
a new bare-bones system to which I (sigh) moved all of the Pavilion's drives.

If you guys can figure out a way to test the reliability of a CD drive, that 
might be a nice option to add....
