I used linux update with the anaconda update .img from here:


Installer would hang during format. mke2fs trapped. I hoped there would be an 
anaconda fix to to help solve this, even though I do not have 3ware stuff or 
use raid.

Try booting with 'linux ide=nodma'.  Does that help?

Changed the disk to a two Gb disk from a 20 Gb. New problems occurred. Put in a 
newer CD drive. No difference. Installed on another system perfectly with CD so 
ISO images were good. 

Changed the memory from 256 Mb SDRAM to 128 Mb SDRAM. Installed finally. The 
256 Mb dimm was flaky. It caused problems on other systems, too.
