AVI file made in VMware that shows the crash.
Attached VMware AVI file shows the installerror. The error happens at the end
(duh). It needs a special decoder for Linux, newest mplayer codecs contains a
DLL for this.
This should be fixed in the next anaconda build.
Also note that you can workaround by giving your VMware guest more RAM -- if you
have over 192 MB of RAM, then you should get the main stage2.
I gave my VM 196 MB RAM, but I still get the same error, so I'm not sure this
workaround actually works.
