I'm trying to install off a floppy image over the network and chose to 
install via ftp from ftp://phyppro1.phy.bnl.gov/pub/mirror/redhat-

I can relyable get this error.

Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda.real", line 438 in ?
    intf.run(todo, test = test)
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 1030, in

This is due to most likely a corrupt mirror of the Red Hat 7 install tree - try
a different site.
