Considering the error messages:

MCA EVENT occurred : SAL error processing
MCA/INIT might be dodgy or fail.


I would try start the installation with:

linux nomca

Shalom,

Red Hat 5.1 was released this weekend. My we have a busy beaver sysadmn here.

An Itanium server requires IA-64 media, it won't work off the EMT64 Intel media. Do you have the right media?

Details, Details.
