CDs all passed SHA1SUM and disk check successfully.

Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2005-06-21 15:56:08 UTC
You appear to be having hardware problems.  From your anaconda dump file:

<4>hdb: dma_intr: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
<4>hdb: dma_intr: error=0x10 { SectorIdNotFound }, LBAsect=20032845, high=1,
low=3255629, sector=20032845
<4>ide: failed opcode was: unknown

Comment 4 corkbuster 2005-06-21 17:08:16 UTC
The drive is up and running as an FC3 system.

Comment 5 Chris Lumens 2005-06-21 21:10:13 UTC
When you run dmesg after booting into your FC3 system, are you seeing the same
sorts of error messages as I found in your anacdump.txt file?

This does look like faulty hardware. Following is a list of things you could
