(anaconda :76): GnomeCanvas -critical**: file gnome-canvas-path-def.c :

What hardware is in your system?
The hardware is as follows:
1. Gateway Crystalscan monitor
2. Dell dimension xps t500 w/PIII 500 mhz and 176 megs/ram
3. 16x dvdrom
4. western digital 80 gb hard drive (partitioned 20gb/windows,60gb/linux
trying to configure for dual boot using Grub bootloader. ( this was already
setup in my older gateway system.))
5. Promise ultra 66 ide card
6. 3com ethernet card 3c905 cx-txm
7. Diamond Multimedia Sonic impact S100 sound card
8. Aztech 56k modem
9. floppy drive
10. Onboard USB ports (I believe it is ver. 1.1)
Some additonal notes that might be needed:
A)The harddrive is connected to the Promise controller card set as
master, the dvd rom is connected to the motherboards ide controller connector 1
set as master.
B) The 3com ethernet card is attached to a cable modem with internet
connection always on.
C) The memory is both parity and non-parity in different banks.

I have tried it from cd's that I have made but I still get a hang after the
packages start being installed. Also it hangs on different install types,
different package selections, and never hangs on the same package. I booted
from the cd not from a boot floppy.
This should be better iwth newer releases.
