Comments/Problems: Gets to installing software and stops at 5%. Alt- F4 shows a list of packages and "Do you want to ignore this warning and proceed anyway?" etc. Problem being this install worked only yesterday and no way to answer the question.

Booted using "expert irqpoll acpi=force"

Using RC1 because the daily builds I tested do not work on this machine, in fact I believe the 2.6.18 kernel does not work on this machine (lilo stops working after updating to 2.6.18) but the 2.6.17 somewhat works (no CD after install).
