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.
