Memorial Abends During NetWare 3.12 Install
SYMPTOM

        "Richard Keil Memorial Abend #27" 
TROUBLESHOOTING

        The user was trying to install v3.12.  While in INSTALL he
        received the above message.
CAUSE

        This message was intended to be remarked out before the code
        being frozen.  Many other "memorial abends" were remarked out.
        This error is usually triggered by disk hardware failures.
SOLUTION

        The user was trying to install v3.12 on a clone machine. When
        they installed v3.12 on a certified machine the problem went
        away.

        From what Novell has seen the error is manifest when there is a
        drive deactivation due to hardware failure, bad cabling, and so
        forth.
