[ale] Ramdisk Error on RH 7.1 Install

The message on the screen first says "Loading /mnt/runtime..." then "Loading
/mnt/runtime/ramdisk..."  That's when a new box appears over that one saying
"Error loading ramdisk.  Please restart your computer" or some such.  Trying
from virgin floppies sounds like a good idea, but by the time I get to the
error, the procedure has already started to
distribution...files...owner is root...mode...of 733 or less

Correct on all the compiler stuff.

I have not done an ftp install of RH7.1 Try making new floppies. Check the
usuall spots for new floppy image updates. Did ther job die _making_ the
ramdisk, or after?
