While trying to install system using FTP as source anaconda just stops
installing on random package. It happens only while installing more than basic

CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE, system then restarts same as in normal killing, also no
error is reported on any screen.

How much RAM does your system have?

I have had the same problem.
On a system (Firewall under Redhat9) with 128MB, the upgrade has failed.
On the same system, I have start an installation (Text Internet, Developpement
Tools), the installation has stalled again while resolving packages
dependancies. After more than 36 hours, I have used Ctrl-Alt-Del.
Once upgraded to 256MB, the installation has stalled while installing a RPM
(libgcj maybe).
Finaly, the installation has worked with Text Internet package only.
