Description system 2000-06-23 07:26:16 EDT
We tried reusing an old Toshiba Notebook (T4600C). It has an 486 at 33 Mhz
and 12 MB Ram with an 500 MB Harddisk
We docked it in the Docking Station to use an ICA Network card (Western
Digital: wd8003.o and a NE2000 compatible one)

The Problem:
After the system has already started copying files from the Net-Server (we
tried http and nfs) it suddenly locks up with:

Traceback (innermost last):
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 146, in ?
 from text import InstallInterface
File "/usr/lib/phython1.5/site-packages/text.py", line 16 in ?
from textw.constants import *
File "/usr/lib/phython1.5/site-packages/textw/__init___.py", line 1
 <Some unprintable ASCII that looks like a little block)N
SyntaxError: incalid syntax
install exited abnormally
sending termination signals...

with HTTP:
received signal 7

Redhat 6.2 works fine so we rather use that :-)
