Description of problem:
On the 2nd CD of RedHat 8.0 install, the installer crashes while trying to 
install the kdebase-3.0.3-13 package.  The file /mnt/sysimage/var/tmp/kdebase-
3.0.3-13.i386.rpm could not be opened.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Simply run the install program

Actual Results:  After going through all the pre-install configuration, install 
begins.  On the second CD, the installer crashes and offer the option of saving 
the crash dump

Expected Results:  the package should have been installed

Additional info:

The CD's I got were CD images downloaded from the RedHat site.
I got the following error:
/mnt/sysimage/var/tmp/kdebase-3.0.3-13.i386.rpm cannot be opened.  This is due 
to a missing file, a bad package, or bad media.  Press <return> to try again.

As I pressed return, I got an "unhandled exception" error.  The message said it 
was probably due to a bug and suggested I filed a bug report against anaconda.
