I am a new Linux user and was trying to do a fresh install.  I got to the 
Installing packages screen and told it to install.  Then I got a window 
that said "Exceptional Error" and told me to save the following string to 
a floppy and submit it to this website:Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py", 
line 20, in run
    rc = self.todo.doInstall ()
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 1470, in 
doInstall
    self.fstab.turnOnSwap()
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/fstab.py", line 406, in 
turnOnSwap
    isys.swapon (file)
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/isys.py", line 142, in swapon
    return _isys.swapon (path)
SystemError: (22, 'Invalid argument')

Local variables in innermost frame:

<failed>

That was on the first attempt.  Upon further retries it will never let me 
get past the choosing Installation Type screen.
