Description of problem:
I am trying to install fedora core test3.  I have to use linux nofb text to 
install because my monitor is not detected.  There is another ticket open 
already to have my monitor added to the database.  I answer the mouse question, 
language, choose to update existing fedora core test2 system and then the 
installer crashes.  Attached the file the crash generated.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  use linux nofb text
2.  answer the questions until upgrade existing system
3.  installer crashes

Actual Results:  system tells me a crash has happened and to send this file to 

Expected Results:  I should be able to install test3

I can't upload the crash text at the moment.  I keep getting page not found 
when I try to submit an upload.  Here is the first several lines from the 
text.  Maybe it will be a start.  I will try to upload the file later today.
