Description of problem:
I am attaching the anacdump file, but basically the installation is failing
during the post installation script with a invalid 22 argument. Not exactly
sure what that means. When the machine boots it fails with a non-system disk
or disk error message. This machine is brand new, so I was hoping the problem
was with my configuration.
Any help would be appreciated.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

The machine has a 36GB HD. During the patitioning, I left 10GB or so
unalloacted. 10GB was set as a LV.

Error message reported at the end of the installation.
Are you activating the device eth1 during configuration?
I was configuring the machine to use a specific IP address so I setup eht0 to
that IP address and unchecked eth1. I did several more re-installations and
isolated the problem to the network cards as well. I was able to get the
machine to boot if I enabled both of them to use DHCP, which is not what I
want to do. I am going to try to re-install again, this time giving eth0 an
IP address and eht1 to use DHCP. Will that work?
Thanks for the quick response.
I am not sure but I would recommend you try RHL 9 instead as we've fixed alot of
problems since RHL 8.
