Description of problem:
I attempted to do a fresh install of Core 3 in graphical mode. Tried
a custom install, manually partitioned the drive, after formatting
the drive anaconda starts then exits with an exception. Rebooted and
attempted a vanilla "workstation" install in graphical mode. Same
error occurs. Have run media test on all 3 CD's and no errors found.
Attempted vanilla workstation install in text mode, again installer
crashes. I will attach dumps from graphical and text installs.
PC is a Dell Optiplex GX260 with P4 2.8ghz, 1GB of ram and 40GB hdd.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot from CD, select either text or graphical install
2.Vanilla Workstation Install
Actual Results: Anaconda exits abnormally.

Can you try booting with ide=nodma and see if that helps?
