This is the EXACT same system AND hard drive onto which RH 6.2 retail
standard was recently installed successfully.  I was doing a complete
reinstall (not an upgrade).   The system briefly is: 800Mhz EB coppermine
PIII flip-chip PPGA CPU, 256MB pc133 DIMM RAM, 61.4GB maxtor diamondmax 60
EIDE ATA66/ATA100 drive, DVD-ROM/CD-ROM, floppy, ASUS CUSL2 MB, intel 815E
chipset.  To repeat, RH6.2 installed without any issues on this system.

Checked the errata and there are no install errata at this time.  Tried the
install from CDROM boot and floppy boot, in text and GUI mode, all attempts
were in expert mode with "custom" selected.

The RH 7.0 anaconda program in text or GUI mode encountered an exceptional 
condition during install right after completing the file system creation
step.  The dialog box said it is probably a bug and to report it using
bugzilla.redhat.com.  I chose the save option and this is the text that
was saved to the floppy:

  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py", line
20, in run
    rc = self.todo.doInstall ()
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 1480, in
    if self.method.systemMounted (self.fstab, self.instPath,
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/image.py", line 46, in
    self.loopbackFile = mntPoint + fstab.filesystemSpace(mntPoint)[0][0] +
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/fstab.py", line 258, in
    space.append((mntpoint, isys.fsSpaceAvailable(topMount + '/' +
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/isys.py", line 16, in fsSpaceAvailable
    return _isys.devSpaceFree(fsystem)
SystemError: (2, 'No such file or directory')

Local variables in innermost frame:
fsystem: /mnt/sysimage//win2k

ToDo object:

We are about to release an errata for this.
