Summary says it all. Generic SVGA worked with previous (6.x) RedHat version
installs. I circumvented the problem by choosing Unlisted Card instead, so
it's not really a serious problem, but the error dialog insisted I come

that it needs to be a 'Workstation' install.
2. Choose 'Generic SVGA' when asked about what type of video hardware the
3. Watch as the installer fails.

debug file produced by installer after failure.
Already been fixed. The 'server' variable wasn't being properly initialized and
was essentially a non-existant variable when choosing 'generic svga'.
