Description of problem:
During install of 8.0, 7.3, or 7.2 from burned ISO's, the installer hangs on an 
RPM at various points. It does not seem to be the same package every time, and 
it does the same thing on multiple hard drives.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert Disc 1
2. Begin Install
3. Wait for packages to begin installing

Actual Results:  Installer hangs on package install

Expected Results:  Complete installation of RedHat Linux 8.0

Additional info:

I passed Memcheck86 testing, no errors. Media passes mediacheck.

If you switch to VC4 as this delay is happening, do you see lots of IDE errors?
This is almost certainly a CD issue.
Comment 2 Ryan Powers 2003-04-01 08:16:11 EST
No errors. It was in fact just those two hard disks that I tried it on that 
caused problems. I picked up an old 10GB drive and it worked fine. So, my bad.
