From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.2.18 i686; en-US; 0.7) Gecko/20010105
installing "custom" (all but kernel dev) inside VMWare workstation. Chose
fairly standard options (english, us kb, ps/2 mouse, manual / + /boot +
swap parttioning, shadow/md5 but no nis/ldap/etc). Selected all high-level
package options presented by "custom" except kernel dev (not enough room).
anaconda says it's checking packaghe dependencies, then crashes. happens
with standard fiher disk1 and with the upddisk1 update floppy.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.start to install fisher on an empty disk as described above
2.choose your packages
3.watch anaconda install packages
Actual Results: after selecting packages, it says it's checking
dependencies, but crashes before I see any indication of any packages being
Expected Results: I expected to see information about package
installation, with some sort of progress meter, as I have seen in the past
I do have the anacdump.txt file if you need it.
Please attach the file.
We (Red Hat) should really try to resolve this before next release.

We've seen this before. This has already been fixed.
