This issue has been proposed when we are only considering blocker
issues in the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release.

** If you would still like this issue considered for the current
release, ask your support representative to file as a blocker on
your behalf. Otherwise ask that it be considered for the next
Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. **

We no longer do anaconda updates for RHEL3, sorry.  If you're seeing this intermittently, it could be something like media read errors though.  Did you run media check before installation?

If you are seeing this on RHEL4 as well, please attach the complete /tmp/anacdump.txt file to this bug report.

I tried several time, and reproduced the bug, the guest is RHEL4u8-x86_64.
Attach the file /tmp/anacdump.txt.

Sorry, I've just learned we are also no longer doing anaconda updated for RHEL4 either.  If you continue to see this problem in RHEL5, we will investigate.
