Description Al Lustie 2002-11-03 01:06:07 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.0.1)
Gecko/20020823 Netscape/7.0

Description of problem:
I booted from CD.  Using an Intel 233 Pentium, 48 MB ram (worked fine with 7.1)
and a 40 G. hard drive.  A "bug" screen popped up and offered to save error
messages to floppy.  It would not.  Clicking OK resulting in nothing.  I had to
turn the machine off to reboot.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Boot from RedHat 8.0
2.  Select automatic partitioning
3.  Select any package.  I used Personal, and Custom
4.  Click on Install Now

Actual Results:  It said it was checking dependancies, then locked up.  It put a
screen up noting the error messages, with three options.  I selected "Save to
Floppy" -- it did nothing.  I clicked O.K.  It did nothing.  I had to turn the
machine off (Control-Ald-Delete didn't work) in order to reboot.  I tried this
several times.  

Expected Results:  It should have installed Linux REDHAT 8.0 and all packages
