During the initial installation the install program crashes.
I have tried to install as both a workstation and server with
the same results.  The crash occurs right after formatting
the partitions during the initial install of the selected
packages.  It crashes in the anaconda process at the 
same place each time.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Just install the product selecting either workstation or server
2.
3.
	

Actual Results:  Traceback (innermost last):

Comment 1 Mark R. Gilder 2001-03-24 14:51:49 UTC
I have downloaded and installed the ananconda patch: RHBA-2000:084-04 and
the installation process is moving along okay now - about 50% complete.
No problems yet.

Comment 2 Mark R. Gilder 2001-03-26 03:13:19 UTC
Installation worked fine with the RHBA-2000:084-04 patch.
