Description of problem:
Blank network settings upset anaconda, and anaconda crashes.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot through the Installation CD 1
2. At the boot prompt, type "linux rescue" and press Enter.

language 'English' as it is)

Actual Results: Observe that the anaconda installer crashes.
Expected Results: May not crash, of course :).
In the BSOD screen :), I see these error messages:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 596, in ? rescue.runRescue(rootPath,
not rescue_nomount, id)
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/rescue.py", line 199, in runRescue

IndexError: tuple index out of range

you may safely reboot your screen
(Of course those lines were all over the display, I arranged them as
much as I could.)
Fixed in CVS, thanks for the report.
Just want to add the comment that it is present in FC3 as released as
