I think there might be a problem with the indexhtml-7.0-2.noarch.rpm 
file.  When I do a directory compare with my ftp program, I get the local 
and server copies of this file showing different sizes, even after trying 
to download the file several times.
I am given the following info dumped to a floppy file after the crash:

Traceback (innermost last):

<failed>


Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Boot from floppy disk.
2.  Enter default boot mode.
3.  Set up options ( english, US keyboard, 2 button mouse )
4.  Partition hard drive ( 15 GB - 3.2 GB for Linux w/ 125 MB swap file )
5.  Enter domain name, root password, user ID and Password.

	

Actual Results:  The screen goes blank, with a message box in the middle 
saying loading packages.  Then it aborts with the messages above, giving 
you the option to save them to a file.

Expected Results:  I believe the packages should have been confirmed and 
the installation continued.

This means something is not setup up correctly in the hard drive install image
you setup to install from.
