Description Alister 2002-11-01 04:21:33 UTC
Description of Problem:
During installation of RedHat 8.0 onto a Windows 2000 Workstation machine 
running Connectix' VirtualPC 5.1, the installer reported that the file for the 
GNOME Display Manager (gdm- was corrupt. The installer offered to 
dump the installation report onto a floppy disk (this was done, but I don't 
seem to be able to attach files to this report ... so if you want this dump,

informed me that this was a fatal error, and the installation died (this was 
about 65% of the way through the installation).
