Description of problem:
When trying to install FC5 over ftp, it is found the Anaconda crashes every after I have chosen to Skip CR-ROM check. After choosing different combinations, it turns out that a null-password for a non-anonymous ftp server crashes Anaconda.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot up with "linux askmethod"
2.Choose to install over non-anonymous ftp.
3.It crashes after network info been asked and the CD check phase has been through. (It doesn't matter whether the CD check is done or skipped.)

Actual Results:
Anaconda crashes.

Expected Results:
Start installation.

I am unable to reproduce this in Rawhide.  Please try with FC6test3 and let us
know if this is still broken for you.
Comment 4 Anthony Liu 2006-09-06 19:33:10 EDT
I can try FC6test3 but it won't be so soon.

The ftp server involved is a FileZilla FTP server.
The username is 3 letters in length. Password is empty.

It seems like FC5 installer crashed after it has passed the authentication
procedure on the FTP server.
Comment 5 Anthony Liu 2006-09-21 04:04:33 EDT
Is there a d/l link for FC6test3? I tried to find an ISO file but was unlucky.

From the release announcement:

HTTP, FTP, and RSYNC downloads are available from these Fedora Project
mirrors.  Note that not all mirrors may be synced at this time.
