Try component 'anaconda' (the installer) for the bug-report, it might find its
way to the correct person.

Comment 2 Ngo Than 2001-01-04 12:04:00 UTC
you have choosed wrong component. It should go to "anaconda". I assigned it to
the
correct person.

Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2001-01-09 22:57:19 UTC
This looks alot like bug 16686, which we are currently investigating.
