clicking on NEXT there was a bug report.
Actual Results: bugreport at the moment of examming packages

Installation with the CDroms did work well.
We test NFS ISO installation extensively so I know it works.
What is the hardware you are running the installer on, and can you please attach
the entire bug report from the installer?
I'm sorry but i don't have a bug report cose i did install afterwards manualy
with the cdrom-set.
I hav the iso-files on a P3 550 MHz machine with 128 Mb memmory and a 10Mb
ethernet PCI card.
I tryed to install on 2 laptops --> one a Compaq Evo N610 new laptop with 1.6 G
proc P4 with 512 Mb mem and build in ethernetcard 10/100. and on an old laptop
a PII 233 MHz with 64 Mb with Xircom multiadapter 10/100.
On both anaconda is started, X windows is started. When it went wrong i get a
textscreen with the following messages:
starting X server
1..2..3..4..5 X server started successfully
install exited abnormaly --
received signal 11
sending termination signals ... done
sending kill signals ... done
it's save to reboot your computer now.
Is it possible that installation is broken down cause of network errors.
It hapened once in a while, the collision indicator lighted ?
But i should exspect it should work.
I'm glad you were able to install from CD.
It does sound like some sort of networking issue as we have not seen this and we
have done hundreds of NFS ISO based installs.
