Installer Crashes during XConfiguration

During setup, just after you choose your video card, setup crashes out.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. choose your package type - custom / laptop / whatever - just make sure
you keep the Xwindows & Gnome program groups selected
2. continue through the install until you come to the Xwindows config -
video card selection
3. choose a video card and watch it fail.
Actual Results: I receive errors and the install stops. You may view the
complete anaconda dump @ http://www.katnap.com/anacdump.txt
Expected Results: I expected to see the setup format the parition(s) and
continue installing the said packages.
I have run setup about half a dozen times and have narrowed the error to
the Xwindows set of packages. If you select everything BUT the X-windows
and Gnome Packages, install will be successful. I have been unable to
install the X-windows system after installation. Package dependancies
require XFree86-3.x to be installed prior to their installation.
Machine this is being installed upon is a Toshiba Portege 7200ct Laptop
with the standard boot boot disk. The ISO images have been saved and
verified on an VFAT parition for installation.
Various other Stuff -
HD is an IBM-DJSA-220 (20 Gig)
320 MB Ram
This is a dupe, and I think its been fixed. Assigning to a developer.
