Does this still happen in more recent betas?

Comment 2 Nalin Dahyabhai 2003-02-21 05:38:46 UTC
Installation ran to completion for me on an SMP Athlon XP system, 20 February
daily tree, kernel 2.4.20-2.51smp, anaconda 8.0.95-0.20030220021209.

Apologies for the delay, I've been on holiday.

The machine in question no longer powers up. memtest86 used to check out OK,
but some bit of hardware just isn't doing the Right Thing.

Given that nobody else has managed to reproduce this, it must be a fault with
our machine--sorry for the noise.
