Description of problem:
I tried installing Fedora Core 3 on my system, and when I tried the 
graphical install, all I got was colored lines on the screen.  While 
the colored lines were very pretty, I could not do anything.  So, I 
tried the text installation, and got much further, but when I 
selected which packages to install, I got an error.  I saved the dump 
and it is attached.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run text install on FC 3
2.Select US everything
3.Select server install
4.Select all packages

I have tried to install again and this time it let me start the 
graphical installer, but once I get to the package selection screen, 
it will hang and the screen will just show colors.  The screen looks 
like static on a tv except in color.

This should be fixed with newer trees.  If you remove the first five
megs or so (with dd of /dev/zero) of the partitions you're using, that
should fix things.
