Description of problem:
After having choosen which systems you want to boot and which one is default, anaconda crashes with this error:
text.py", line 165, in __call__
   locations.append (format %
(device, _(desc)))
 File "/usr/lib/anaconda/text.py",
line 629, in run
   rc = win(self.screen, instance)
 File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line
1065, in <module>
UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec
can't decode byte 0xc3 in position
9: original not in range(128)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora9-Alpha i386 rescue CD: install in text mode via FTP

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
0. download Fedora9-Alpha rescue CD i386 and check the SHA1SUM
1. boot Fedora9-Alpha rescue CD i386
2. choose new install in text mode
3. when ask for install method, choose URL
4. URL = ftp://ftp.free.fr/mirrors/fedora.redhat.com/fedora/linux/releases/test/9-Alpha/Fedora/i386/iso/
5. let all options as default
6. just after anaconda asked for which systems to boot and which will be default (the screen which will build the grub menu)
7. validate this screen and it crashes with this error.

Actual Results:
Anaconda crashes every times in text mode

Expected Results:
it should have continued with the next step of the installation, just after grub configuration.

Additional info:
The system is uninstalable with the options all set to default.

Which locale are you running with?
Comment 2 Dag 2008-03-17 05:00:33 EDT
I'm running with french locale (fr-FR).
Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2008-04-20 17:00:37 EDT
I think Jeremy fixed this up the other day when fixing a related bug.  Please
try the preview release of F9 and see if it's working better.
