Description of problem:
Since I installed a 120GB Harddrive to my Compaq PIII 700,
Anaconda dies during install, just after the 
"Starting  Anaconda" screen.

The message is:
exec: Permission denied
install exited abnormally
sending termination signals

I passed the Mediacheck!

When I use the old 20GB HD, everything works fine,
also RH 8 installs fine on the system wit 120 GB.

any hints?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Anaconda delivered with 9.0 iso

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. insert 120 GB samsung HD
2. boot from CD

Actual Results:  system shut down

Expected Results:  normal install

Did you happen to put the 120GB drive on the same IDE chain as the CD drive?
Comment 2 StK 2003-05-20 02:37:22 EDT
No, it's on the other one.
I also tried RH 7.3 without installation problems.
Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2003-05-20 12:16:57 EDT
I do not know of any reason this should not work.  I have not tested a Samsung
drive specifically, but we do alot of test installations on a variety of IDE
hard drive configurations.  The problem is reading a binary from the CD and the
exec is failing. You may want to try a hard drive based install instead.
