RE: Compaq Presario 5610 cannot install RH8



Problem Solved!

I finally was able to search bugzilla and found the solution there:
bug#75377
It has a link to an update image for anaconda:
http://people.redhat.com/~katzj/8.0-cdread.img

The installer now works ok.  It still could not read some of the largest
rpm's (open office) but does not crash. so I installed without them.

There are still some problems reading very large files from the DVD-ROM.  I
may have to ftp them from Red Hat.

The system is now up and running and I can install the packages I want at my
leisure.

Exactly the same problem trying to make un update from RH7.3 to 8.0 on
two different desktops (PII233, Pentium III): clean installation went
fine on both......
