From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.75 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.14-5.1 i686)

Description of problem:
I have the Red Hat 7.1 Disks and am trying to upgrade my 6.2 system.  Each
time I go through the initial setup, and whether or not I select to
customize the package upgrade, anaconda stops with a OSError: [Errno 2] No
such file or directory.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Insert Disk
3.Follow Next buttons to Package Upgrade screen

Actual Results:  Anaconda crashes every time.

Expected Results:  Find the packages and upgrade them

Additional info:

The disks are fine.  I used them earlier today to upgrade a 7.0 system.  I
have read the workaround on the Red Hat site regarding a similar problem,
but /tmp is an actual directory and /var/tmp is an actual diretory (no
symbolic linking):
>cd /; ls -la
drwxrwxrwt   15 root     root         4096 Jul 19 20:38 tmp
>ls -la /var 
drwxrwxrwt    6 root     root         1024 Jul 19 20:20 tmp 

I have /var set up on its own partition that is 200Mb, so I don't know if
/var is not being mounted and causing problems.
