Description Bart 2004-03-08 21:02:15 UTC
Description of problem:

Got version 8.0 on three CD's with a book.
checked media were OK.

Have a 9 GB and 2.45 GB HDD's 

Disk druid and whatever other method e.g. f disk has no problem 
seeing the HDD's. Symptome of what follows happens whichever disk I 
try to install to and whether I pick a minimum (400 Meg ) install or 
maximum install (4.5 GB I believe)or any option in between.

Installs image to HDD and starts to install packages. I will give 
example of Personal Desktop install i.e 1601MB

Gets about half way through (or on larger installs gets to second CD)
Then anaconda crashes (partial dump details below) 

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

Red Hat Linux version 8

How reproducible: Happens no matter which install I select.

Additional info:

Screen gives following message 
partial dump follows - 20 lines of text 

Traceback (most recent call last):
