Description of problem:
Trying to install RHEL ES4.0 on a IBM R40. The install fails with
"redhat exec of anaconda failed: permission denied". Checked bugzilla and found

This does not work for me.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Reboot system and boot from RHEL 4.0 install CD
2.At prompt 1. hit return OR 2. type "linux alllowcddma" OR 3.type "linux allowcddma notext" ........
The install process failed woth the following
"redhat exec of anaconda failed permission denied
sending termination signal......"
Expected Results: Should have progressed through a successful install.
