Description of problem:
As soon as I choose the keyboard language I see error messages like
this one. Wether I click on Ignore or Cancel, once I have selected
the packages the install ends abnormally and I have these error
messages (see anacdump.txt file)
I selected language 'French' and keyboard 'French' as well.
Created attachment 111082 [details]
the anacdump file saved on floppy at the crash
I just tried with english default install, and us english default
keyboard settings, the exact same error occured.
(personal desktop and custom installs tested).
My platform is a Sempron 2400+ with 256MB DDRAM 2700.
I indicated to the autopartitioning system 13GB of free space on an
unformatted partition besides my windows partition on the booting HD.
