Have you tested all your installation media?
Comment 2 Rich Taylor 2003-04-11 12:05:34 EDT
Unfortunately, I don't know how.  I purchased the software so assume the disks 
are good but this is no real guarantee. I really know nothing about Linux.  I 
do know that I have installed Mandrake on this system without incident.
Comment 3 Rich Taylor 2003-04-11 13:48:02 EDT
Here is some more info:

I removed hardware (video and nic) and am now able to proceed in the install.  
I get into the install and get this error:
/mnt/sysimage/var/tmp/linuxdoc.tools- cannot be opened.  This 
is due to a bad image, disc media etc.

I downloaded the iso and made my own CD.  Result is the same.  I burnt a new cd 
using the cd from Red Hat as the source and the result is the same.

If I attempt to restart the installation, I get an error stating <something> 
CPIO - Bad Magic and then the setup stops.  I can't get the entire message 
because it goes by too fast.  

If I shut off the machine for a while (15 minutes) I can then go back into the 
setup just fine but with the above file copy error.

You may want to see if you can swap in a different CD drive in the system. CDs
can be unreliable (I've seen thousands of examples of the problem you are seeing
and its always either bad media or a bad drive).
