or hangs at %99 (and cycles DVD drive until powered off)

How reproducible:
every time

F7 won't even get this far, so this is "progress"

Can you attach /tmp/anaconda.log and /tmp/syslog to this error report?  You can
grab these by switching over to tty2 when the error dialog appears and copying
them off the machine.
