I was trying to install RH7 and at the beginning of the process of
formatting the hard drive i received the following bug report:

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 ()

doInstall
    if self.method.systemMounted (self.fstab, self.instPath,
self.hdList.selected()):
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/image.py", line 46, in
systemMounted
    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 + '/' +
mntpoint)))
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/isys.py", line 16, in fsSpaceAvailable
    return _isys.devSpaceFree(fsystem)
SystemError: (2, 'No such file or directory')

I have just had exactly the same error.  The main thing that worried me is why 
anaconda was trying to do a .devSpaceFree on my windows hard drive (/win in 
this case) rather than on the hard drive that I asked it to install on.  

BTW the old version shipped with RH 6.2 worked perfectly for a clean install on 
my system.
