Description of problem:
I took the anaconda-ks.cfg file from a single install and placed it on a server. I renamed the anaconda-ks.cfg to just ks.cfg, added it as a file attribute in my dhcpcd.conf and shared it via NFS.
When placing in a Fedora 4 Boot CD (the small one found in the images directory), it acquires an IP, gets the ks.cfg and loads up the graphical installer. While on the "Reading Packages" screen, it crashes and I saved the output to disk.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Place in Fedore 4 Boot CD into drive
2. Boot using "linux ks"
Actual Results: Installer failed and gave a stack trace (attached)
Expected Results: It should have installed a fully working Fedore Core 4 Install
