It appears you were installing from ISO images on the partition /dev/sda5. 
However later in the installation it could no longer see this device, causing
the error.

What is the hardware configuration of your system?

Comment 3 Eddie 2003-06-13 01:31:38 UTC
Firstly thank you very much!
My Hardware info is:
Laptop: DELL 2650/P41.7G/256DDR/8MG2Go/20GIDE

Installation process:
1. Download iso1,2,3 and stored them into my USB MASS Storage(IBM 30G HD) 
folder: linux;
2. Boot from Partition2(FAT32) and run AUTOBOOT.bat to start installing RH;
3. in Media select step, choose /dev/sda5 (that's my usb's first logic 
partition); and input directory name: linux
4. It seems that installer recorgnized the usb driver(by log file), and while 
run Partition Tool , system crashed and display an unexpected error...

We will have to see if we have the equipment to reproduce this problem - you
might find it better to burn the ISOs onto CDs and try to install that way.

Does your system have scsi hard drives?

I have this same problem, trying to install via "hard disk" method with ISOs on
an Iomega 80GB HDD usb drive.  The install program can access the drive at
first, then I get the error as above.
