Description of problem: Cannot install a fresh version FC4 with the graphical
install or the text install.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fails every time.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download and check the ISO's against Fedora's sha1 sums
2. Burn the ISO's to cds
3. Boot off the cds and let anaconda try to run
Running anaconda, the Fedora Core system installer - please wait...
'import site' failed; use -v for traceback

you may safely reboot your system
Installer should run.
I have checked the sha1sum with the sums on the Fedora website and all ISO sums
checkout ok. I have also burned the cds using "cdwriter", "xcdroast" and
"cdrecord". When running the mediacheck they all fail. I have also downloaded
the ISO's with a different computer that is currently running FC3. I then burned
them and tried to install them on that second computer and had the same problem.
Please attach your /tmp/anacdump.txt file to this report.
I can't seem to catch it. As soon as the error happens everything unmounts and
the terminal on tty2 locks. Is there any other way to get to this file?
I have found that using cdrecord with the following options has created working
cd images "cdrecord dev=/dev/hdd -dao -eject speed=52 driveropts=noburnfree
Closing based on previous comment. Perhaps we need to add this sort of
information to the documentation for future reference.

why is Bug 162659 considered similar to this one ??? they seem quite different
I am having the same issues as the original submitter (sha1 OK, media check
fails). I burned it with CD Burner XP Pro on Windows XP. What can cause the
burning program to cripple my installation disks for no obvious reason?
