i've been trying to install fedora 8 with nodmraid selinux=0 boot options
my computer is ASUS G2 with 2G memory, before starting to install swap 
partition was turned off
anaconda had has to be updated 'case original version supplied with Fedora 8 
live CD didn't work properly raising an unhandled exception
btw is there a way to install fedora without anaconda - just by hands 
(in 'from scratch' manner - 'case it's a third day i'm unsuccessfully trying 
to install fedora... how much longer i would...) i _really_ want to have 
fedora installed but if that is so hard wouldn't it be better just try another 
distro? don't get me wrong - i just have to work and still can't :'(
Any suggestions are welcome

If you are trying to work around some other bug, you need to see if the Fedora
Unity respin fixes the original problem.  What you've got here is an updated
anaconda from Rawhide that has a whole ton of changes in it, but haven't updated
the other packages that anaconda uses.  In this case, booty is expecting
anaconda to contain methods that it no longer does because you are still using
the old booty.

but why there was no 'updated' booty installed as dependency at moment of
updated anaconda installation procedure? nevermind, i switched back to gentoo ;)
