RH linux enterprise v3 install on hpbl20p error


Hi,
When installing rh Linux es v3 on a hp bl20p I
ran into "cpio error, bad magic " problem. I wonder if anyone has seen this before.

I was able to install Linux using RH9 however.

Looks like there's a bug on ESv3 for HP bl20p
Thanks for any info.

Sounds like an incorrect CD?
Did you dowload it and burn your own CD?
Did you verify the checksum?

Hi,
We bought this CDs directly from REDHAT and I 've used the CDs successfully before to install Linux ES3 on a HP/Compaq proliant 800 recently.

Thanks for your help.

Redhat should be fix the bug in U4.
