Description of problem:
I am trying to install RH 9, 8, or 7.x. The motherboard manufacturer
is a DFI VIA MVP3 P5BV3+ with an Award Bios 01/03/2000-VP3-586B
CD-2A5LED4CC-00. It has an AMD-K6-2/350, 2 WDC 450AA, a CD-ROM, 384M
SDRAM memory, an NVidea TNT2-32M AGP, and an NEC XV15 monitor.  
No matter which version of RH with anaconda, I get the same message
just as it begins to install the software. RH 9 is a download. RH
7.x-8 are boxed editions. I wrote down the Traceback display. How do I
give the Traceback to you? This is my first bug report. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to install the OS

Actual Results:  Same error every time

Expected Results:  Install nicely for me

Additional info:

Traceback (most recent call last)
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 739, in? intf.run(id, dispatch,

5 more lines like the above, then:

File "/usr/lib/anaconda/textw/progress_text.py", line 55, in
setPackageScale self.s.set(int(((amount*1.0)/total)*100))

You should be able to save the traceback to a floppy and then attach
the files from that floppy to this bug report where it says "Create a
new attachment" below the additional comments box.
