Description of problem:
When attempting to install severn on a VMWare 4.0.1 virtual machine, anaconda
halts and hints at an invalid package. Error Message on vt can be found at
http://www.speakeasy.net/~jaboutboul/isys.pyerr.bmp . Install CD was media
tested and is valid. ISO used to make cd was also md5summed. This looks like it
is an error reading from the cd. Please advise.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Using VMWare 4.0.1 attempt to install Severn
2. Switch to disc 2 when prompted

installed but anaconda cant continue.
Actual Results: Xsri was not installed. Anaconda failed to install.
Expected Results: Xsri should be installed and the beta should be installed fine.

This doesn't have anything to do with xsri.
That appears to be a hardware I/O error of some sort. I am not familiar with
vmware so I wouldn't be able to speculate on how to track it down.
We do not support installation of Red Hat Linux under vmware.
