Description vvs 2000-10-10 04:03:31 EDT
RedHat 7.0 with anaconda update from Oct, 9 applied during installation as
per instructions. Trying to do partitionless (loopback) install from CD
onto FAT16. When there is any package from second CD selected during
installation, anaconda will crash. Possible workaround is to not select
packages from the second CD during installation and install them later.

Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py", line
20, in run
    rc = self.todo.doInstall ()
