First, beowulf is an indirect way to get your Rocks questions answered.
You should be posting here: npaci-rocks-discussion at sdsc.edu. The Rocks
developers are on this list.
Second, how did you verify your media. With MD5SUMs?
Does this error occur during the install of the frontend or a compute node?
How much memory does the fronend have? How big are the disks?
You have a mixed frontend/compute node environment. What are you
attempting to install on the frontend? Are you going to install the
i386 on the frontend and then follow the cross-kickstart instructions in
the user guide?
