From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.78 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.9-31enterprise i686)
Description of problem:
The installer shows a message that it has detected an error, probably an
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. go into text mode installation
2. follow the installation for advanced server with all languages chosen or
Dutch(NL) and English(USA)
3. use automatic partitioning
Actual Results: Get a crashdump
Expected Results: A package list should appear
The installation is tried on an IBM 2133-571 with a intel 80486DX 33 MHz
processor, 64MB internal memory and 4GB harddisk.
A crashdump can be send, but is to big to copy here without errors.

The crashdumpfile from anaconda
Please, ignore the remark about not being able to add the crashdump.
Tried to do an Custom Install and got the same crashdump.
I have the same problem:
My set up: pentium 133, 128 MB RAM, Packard Bell D135 (hillary mainboard), 8.4
gig Western Digital drive, "NEC CDROM:282". Booted with floppy, 1st cd in cdrom
drive on local machine.
On the first attempt I pressed enter at the "boot:" prompt for the default
install mode, using English as the installation language, selected a custom
install, and partitioned my disk manually with disk druid.
On the second attempt I entered text at the "boot:" prompt and proceeded as
On the last attempt I went with a default install method, the default system
(vs. a custom system) and autopartitioned.
On all three occasions it failed in the same spot, but the text install shows
the installer is loading packages when it fails and graphical mode appears mor
The file on the floppy created after this crash crash is called anacdump.txt
and begins: (excerpts typed by hand...)

Immediately after this occurered I successfully installed Seawolf on this

For your information: Enigma (RH 7.2) works fine without X-Windows on the IBM
PS/1 model 2133-571
This is because the kernel is being built without an i586 or an i386 variant and
thus it can't find a kernel that will work on your system. Reassigning to kernel
The Advanced Server release is intended for only i686 and above processors, so
this isn't a bug. Closing out.
