Description of problem:
After setting the root password, anaconda displays "Reading package information...". This message disappears a little later and then the following unhandled exception occurs:
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 1160, in ?
  intf.run(id, dispatch)
File "/usr/bin/anaconda/text.py", line 496, in run
File "/usr/bin/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 174, in gotoNext
File "/usr/bin/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 242, in moveStep
  rc = apply(func, self.bindArgs(args))
File "/usr/bin/anaconda/packages.py", line 172, in readPackages
  grpset = method.readComps(hdrlist)
File "/usr/bin/anaconda/installmethod.py", line 65 in readComps
  return self.readCompsViaMethod(hdlist)
File "/usr/bin/anaconda/harddrive.py", line 103 in readCompsViaMethod
  cs = groupSetFromCompsFile(fname, hdlist)
File "/usr/bin/anaconda/hdrlist.py", line 923 in groupSetFromCompsFile
  file = grabber.urlopen(filename, retry = 5)
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/urlgrabber/grabber.py", line 444, in urlopen
  return default_grabber.urlopen(url, **kwargs)
[... many more lines omitted, I don't want to type them here ...]
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/urllib2.py", line 358, in open
  response = self._open(req, data)
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/urllib2.py", line 376, in _open
  '_open', req)
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/urllib2.py", line 337, in _call_chain
  result = func(*args)
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/urllib2.py", line 1119, in file_open
  return self.open_local_file(req)
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/urllib2.py", line 1131, in open_local_file
  import email.Utils
ImportError: No module named email.Utils

This happens on a Vaio PCG-Z505SX (128MB RAM).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. copy all ISO CD images + initrd.img + vmlinuz from FC4 CD1 to a FAT partition
2. boot kernel/initrd from grub
3. select FAT partition on HDD as installation source. 
4. anaconda starts in text-mode (graphics adapter is not supported)
5. select "custom" installation
6. partition HDD, configure GRUB, configure network, no firewall, no SELinux
7. set timzone and password
8. wait

Actual Results:  exception (see above) occurs

Expected Results:  package selection page should appear

Additional info:

I tried several installation methods, result is always the same.
