Installing RedHat - Signal 11!

I tried to install RedHat 5.0. When it is about
75% done loading the supplemental diskette (i am
installing from a dos partition), it core dumps,
says "Install exited abnormally - recieved signal 11"
and shuts down the system (unmounts, the like).
Is this a supp.img problem or something worse?

Singal 11, sound to me like a drive problem, maybe low on disk space !
Did you make a rawdisk (linux bootdisk) with the rawrite command ???, maybe you have to make a disk like that (if you don't have one !)
Please give more details !

I made the RedHat 5.0 Boot (boot.img) and Supplemental (supp.img) diskettes. It happens while loading the second one. I'm going to try reloading. If you have a question about a question - "proper etiquette" (sounds cheesy, I know) is to comment your question, not use an answer.

Bad News - "signal 11" is definetly a hardware problem, not
HardDrive but CPU or RAM. (it may not show under win95 since
Linux uses your hardware much more agressively).
To be sure you may try to increase RAM timings or
decrease CPU clock speed.
if you don't believe me - search DejaNews for "signal 11"

Thanks - looks like something is ugly - I just bought simms recently, and they've been working fine - maybe I should contact Gateway 2000 (my system vendor). Argh!
