Description of problem:
I have A SuSE Linux 8.0 Installation running and wanted to install Red Hat 8.0
as Test-system in parallel.

following Messages appear after loading aic7xxx module and starting x-server:

Running anaconda

probing video card: nvidea gefoce 2 mx
probing monitor type: unable to probe
probing mouse: ....
Traceback (most recent call last)
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", Line 639, in ?
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/", line 420, in makeDriveDeviceNodes
isys.makeDevInode(drive,"/dev/%s" % (drive,))
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/",line265,in makeDevInode
SystemError: (2, 'No such File or Directory')

install exited abnormally.

I made a posting on, where someone told me, that the installation
will work by installing first Red Hat and then SuSE.
But this is (just at the moment) no option for me!

PS: The CD has passt the mediacheck corectly

The error occurs in graphical and lowres-mode as well as in textmode.
