I checked the full log, it appears the only failure starts with the None/.treeinfo stuff

I get the same install failure with 20100607 DVD. Raising to urgent; this is a RHEL DVD install failure which hasn't been fixed.
I tried increasing guest memory to 768M and using the graphical installer. This made no difference. What's going on?
I'm doing nothing unusual during install, besides all the default selections, the only local settings are:
Root password: redhat
Memory shouldn't have anything to do with this. I'll take a look later today.
This is because the format of the DVD is undetected (ID_FS_TYPE is not set in the udev structure), so anaconda cannot figure out what's a valid installation DVD and what's not. This is likely due to a missing call to blkid in our udev rules file.
