Description Michael Quinn 2002-11-07 04:42:22 UTC
Description of Problem:
Roughly half way through the installation of CD #2 of Red Hat Linux 8, it got 
an error saying it couldn't read the media.  When I reinserted the CD, it 
could read it fine... a few minutes later, it crashed with instructions to 
submit the bug to redhat.  I didn't catch the url, but I'm assuming it was 
this url.  It gave me the option of save the dump to a floppy, which I did.

Additional Information:
I've uploaded the dump file to my web server at	

If you don't mind, let me know once you've downloaded this file so I can 
delete it.

We do not support installation of Red Hat Linux into system emulators.

It does sound like you may have bad media.
