Description David 2005-02-15 08:00:12 EST
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.

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.
