Strange behaviour when installing

Post by Bjorn Andersso » Tue, 27 Apr 1999 04:00:00

I have a strange problem when I'm trying to install Redhat 5.2 on a
I put in the bootdisk and I get to the installation screen and I press
enter. It loads initrd.img and loads vmlinuz. But then the machine
reboot. Sometimes also after it have said Uncompressing Linux it says
"ran out of input data  --System halted".
Is there anyone that know what the problem is?

Most likely a corrupt bootdisk


1. RH 6.1--Strange Repeat-Install Behavior

I did a quick workstation install on RH 6.1 just to see what it
was like. I filled in the network information asked for.
Afterwards, I changed my network card, and did another install.
Problem is, it never asked me for the network info, nor my domain

I tried several workstation installs, and a custom one, but I am
never asked for network info. Does it only ask if it detects a
network card? I'm thinking that maybe the new card is not being
detected. What would be very strange about that, would be that
the old card was a 3C905B, which is listed as a problem card, and
the new one is a 3C509B, which is Tier-one supported. I have
3C509b's in other RH systems, but this is the first I have tried
RH 6.1

Any ideas.
