Anaconda dump file
ISO images were downloaded from http://www.linuxiso.org
I'm pretty sure your ISO images were corrupted during the download. Can you

It appears to have been a bad CD-RW burn. Tried FTP install and it works
great. Also re-burned a CD-RW and that works now too. Thanks for your time.
