Errors installing Red Hat 6.0 from CDROM

Hi,

I had previously installed Red Hat 6.0 onto this particular Intel VS440FX with and Adaptec 2940 card and SCSI CDROm and Hard Drive...  I since had installed NT 4 and then Windows 2000.  I have used Partition Magic to delete any partitions on the hard drive before installing and when I try to install, all seems to work fine until the package processing begins and then I start getting the following errors for a bunch rpm (usually starts with termcap and varies):  "Error installing package: <name of rpm> cannot open RPM file"

Anyone seen this before and perhaps might now what's going on?  I've tried may different variations on the install to no avail.

Thanks!

Sounds like a CDROM drive problem to me. Have you changed any of the hardware on the SCSI bus since the original install? Is the SCSI bus properly terminated?

Windows seems to be a bit more tolerant of SCSI and or CD drive problems than Linux. I've seen windows install, apparently without errors, on a system that the SCSI bus wasn't terminated. Neither Linux nor Solaris would install until I found and fixed the SCSI problem.

Ahhh....  I do think I may have changed the SCSI card and the Hard Drive.  It is the same type, but perhaps I missed a termination so I'll check this over.  Good suggestion, I'll return to this after checking.

Yeah, check all the devices, two terminators on the bus will cause almost as much of a problem as no terminator.
