Anaconda dumps on network ftp install, after disk formatting step
This bug sounds close to my encounter. A boot.iso dated 1/11/2004 was used to
perform a fresh install. All went well, until the save problem to disk portion
of the install.
A previous installation using a boot.iso created on 1/5/2004 went sucessfully.
This disk would not install, therefore, the new boot.iso was created and used.

full install selection - some directories chosen. see ls output for /
the following directories were created before the core dump. boot was empty,
but was formatted.
boot etc proc sys var
dev lost+found root tmp
Several other mounting points were added and also were listed. They were
removed from the list above.
Related to rpm change somehow, although I'm not entirely sure as to how.
