Attached traceback automatically from anaconda.
Build was attempted using the boot.iso image. When it was repeated using a full build DVD it was successful. Hardware is a Dell SC400 server, dual 320Gb SATA disks, dual PATA DVD drives, 2GB RAM. Attempting to create a RAID1 based disk config when the problem occured.
This is not rawhide anaconda version. I suggest that you test with current rawhide. Pls verify the validity of the place you are getting your images from.
The following errors in your traceback indicate problems reading from the installation media. This is either due to a bad burn, bad download, bad media, or kernel driver problems. Did you run media check? Can you try verifying your download, burning a new boot.iso, and trying again?

Interesting, the ISO was extracted from the DVD image which was downloaded and checked against MD5 sum. Before using the boot CD the media check was run and passed so I had assumed that ruled out the possibility of a bad burn. Unfortunately the machine in question has now been built and I do not have a spare to retest as requested. If you have access to a suitable test system suggest you attempt to create a RAID1 based custom disk config using the boot CD and see what happens.
