Red Hat hell, continued

Author: JT Smith

The Register: "I anticipated a
sweet time getting 7.2 running, but unfortunately that was not to be.

The new CD boots properly, as I said, but I'm still unable to finish an installation. Only once did I get
the crashdump prompt, but when I clicked on the 'save to floppy' button, the system crashed again.

I've tried partitioning/formatting with Disk Druid, by using the auto partition feature, and by using both
DOS fdisk and Linux fdisk to delete all partitions and rebuild from scratch. I even partitioned using
L-fdisk according to starting/ending cylinders instead of volume sizes, but even that failed."
