Description of problem:
I'm attempting to 'upgrade' a FC2T3 to FC2 using the downloaded (and
verified) FC2 CD images, entering 'selinux' at the boot prompt.
anaconda fails, both when attemping to 'upgrade existing' and with a
fresh install (I tried to reuse the existing partitions).
Here is the traceback info:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 1048, in handleRenderCallback

OSError: [Errno 17] File exists: '/mnt/sysimage/selinux'
I attach the complete 'anacdump.txt' as well.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Using FC2 CDs, attempt to install over existing FC3T3/selinux
system (enter 'selinux' at anaconda prompt).
2. Select either 'upgrade' or 'install'
3. If 'install' retain existing partitions (I haven't tried a complete
wipe out of the drive).
Actual Results: Anaconda abort message described above, with options
to save to floppy. File 'anacdump.txt' attached.

Anaconda dump/traceback info written to floppy....
Upgrades from test releases to final releases aren't supported...
I'll look at this eventually, though, as it will affect FC2 with
SELinux -> FC3 upgrades.
OK. I'll do the 'wipe it clean' thing.
Before I clobber this, is there any additional information, settings,
etc. that would help you?
Hit this bug again going from FC2 -> FC3t1.
I'm guessing 'anaconda' needs to remove /selinux
if it already exists prior to doing its usual
Also seeing this bug on FC2 -> FC3T1 upgrade attempt. Repeated
attempts to save traceback to floppy failed (thought I saw this
flagged as fixed in rawhide), but looks very much like the one in the
attachment above. FC2 was running with selinux disabled.
