After selecting all the options and juz about to start installtion (after 
the message "Preparing to Install"), the system crash. The system is kind 
enough to prompt to save the state onto a floppy but stupid to assume that 
the bug would be reported on a Linux system. In fact, I dun even know what 
to do with the info store on the floppy using my Win ME. Anyway, here's 
the text shown on the screen:

"Exception Occured

   File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 438, in ? intf.run (todo, test = test)

What should I do next?

Is this a CDROM based install?
