You can still be bitten by a bad file. I had this happen last week with
a RH9 install. I downloaded the RH9 ISOs from a mirror site but it
bombed on a file on Disc 3. Tried another mirror site and same thing.
Then I copied all the files to a hard drive partition, mounted Disc 3 on
loop and did a rpm-qpi on the bad file. Sure enough, it was munged and
I got no output from the command. Solution - I downloaded the good file
from the RH repository and reburned Disc 3 and all was fine.
