Install of FC6T1 via DVD failed with exception

Description of problem:Install of FC6T1 from DVD fails
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible:Only tried once
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Download DVD iso image
4.Media check DVD
Actual results:After a short time, I got a message something like
"Error transferring install image to hard drive. You are probably out
of disk space."
DVD reading continued, and then I got a window that said
"An unhandled exception has occurred. This is most likely a bug.
Please save a copy of the detailed exception and file a bug report
against anaconda at your distribution provided bug reporting tool."
I saved the details to a floppy and it then rebooted.
I booted into FC5 to see if there were any posts like this on fedora-test-list
yet - none found. I tried to read the anaconda dump .txt file on the floppy,
and it is unreadable.
Expected results:Installation should proceed normally
Tried install again. Only change was to not do detailed package selection.
Install finished fine. Changing status to NOTABUG.
I have had the same problem repeatedly on a x86-64 DVD install also. The
partition has 9.1GB free, and there's 1.5GB swap. I get the issue regardless of
whether I do detailed selection or not. I've tried three times now in slightly
different ways. I'll try a couple more times tonight, but I'm not sure if
anything will change...
By using a 10.0GB partition instead of 9.1GB, the problem went away. It may or
may not have been a coincidence, but I didn't change anything else.
