Description WW 2002-01-27 11:24:24 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.79 [en] (Win98; U)

Description of problem:
After defaulting most of the installation options, the formatting of /filesystem starts. I am getting a variety of errors, including kernel panic, python 
errors, and anaconda errors (see attached). There does not seem to be any logic to the type of error that occurs. Occasionally I have gotten as far 
as the RPMS tranfer before the dump or other abort occurs.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select installation options (Server)
2. Begin installation
3. Wait
