Description of problem:
I first tried to upgrade the installation from 6.1 to 7.1 from a downloaded 
iso, but that install hung with about 25 minutes left according to the progress 
information (hard drive iso install).  When I later tried to do a workstation 
install (because the filesystem did not unmount cleanly and old 6.1 install no 
longer boots so upgrade installation cannot be done), it terminates with signal 
9 after inputing the host information and during the GNOME package 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from floppy 
2. Direct installer to iso files on hard drive (does not see them on CD-ROM 
3. Enter host info, choose packages, and exception occurs.

Actual Results:  Exception occurs and the option to exit (OK), save 
information, or debug exception dialog box is raised.  Installer then 

Expected Results:  Installer should have continued loading the software to 

Additional info:

The downloaded files checked correctly with md5sum.
