Description of problem:
I encounter this error when trying to run the graphical installation of RH
7.1 Deluxe Workstation.  I cannot even get the installation process to
begin.  I called the RH technical support and he told me to report the
problem here at bugzilla

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Install RH 7.1 Deluxe Workstation from CD-ROM

Actual Results:  
I have just bought the redhat 7.1 deluxe workstation
disribution and tried installing it today.  I haven't
even gotten the installation to start up.  I try
booting from the CDROM, binary disk 1.  This brings me
to the boot menu where I am given the options of
graphical, text mode, expert, or some other install
options.  Here I hit enter to go with the default
graphical installation.  And this is what happens:

First I bunch of messages are printed on the screen
too quickly to read for the most part.  It looks like
it is detecting the hardware on my system.

Then a completely blue screen is shown for many ten
seconds, then at the bottom it types:

Running anaconda - please wait ...
Probing mouse ...
Waiting for X server to start ... log located in
/tmp/X.log ... X server started successfully.

Now, it goes to a blank screen for a few seconds and
goes back to the messages, saying:

Gdk-ERROR **: Fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by
peer) on X server :1.
install exited abnormally
sending termination signals ... done
sending kill signals ... done
disabling swap ...
unmounting filesystems ...
   /mnt/source umount failed ()
you may safely reboot your system

That is it.  Nothing else happens and when I reboot, I
am taken back to the main install menu and the process
starts agian with the same results.

Does it work better if you boot with 'linux text'?
