Ok, I'm trying to get a better idea of what happened. You were trying to start
a GUI install and then got this message? When you say "after X test" do you
mean when the GUI installer is starting or does it happen when you are in the
Xconfiguration screen in the installer?
Setup would start X, (the RedHat logo and mouse cursor would appear) but then
drop back down to the text-menu based installer to request language and
keyboard, then the "welcome to the installer" screen would appear,
clicking "OK" would bring you to the error display.
However, downloading a new .ISO, verifying its checksum and burning a new
installer CD rectified the problem...
