Description of problem:

Running anaconda, the Fedora Core rescue mode - please wait...
Traceback (most recent call last):

File "/usr/lib/anaconda/rescue.py", line 167, in runRescue

you may safely reboot your system

Steps to Reproduce:
1. At boot prompt, enter: linux rescue
2. See above message
Actual Results: see above
Expected Results: console
This is happening on two different machines. CD's were checked prior
to installation using the CD validation tool during setup.
I am placing this in the HIGH category as having a rescue disk is very
important to recover a system and/or data. Since the rescue CD is not
working, systems cannot be rescued. This needs to be fixed.
