Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2003-05-13 12:27:40 EDT
Could you please test your media by booting with 'linux mediacheck'?
Comment 3 alan rubin 2003-05-13 19:59:43 EDT
Yes, media was bad.  As a suggestion, perhaps media checking for at least the 
anaconda program could be made automatic, or at the very least the option for 
integrity checking could be made more prominent.
Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2003-05-20 14:47:20 EDT
We do prompt people to check their media if they downloaded it and burned it
themselves.  We do not prompt about the mediacheck for CDs from the boxset from
the store however.
