Description of problem:
see URL above for full anaconda dump

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. basic install
2. used manual disk partitioning
3. crapped out on second cd
4. tried twice more and succeeded on the third try (no changes to selections)

Actual Results:  Installer dumped out (captured crash log) and I had to start
from scratch again (and again).

Expected Results:  I would have liked to complete the installation by skipping
the offending RPM or at least re-trying the failed op.

Please run the mediacheck test, you appear to have a bad CD.

A similar thing happened to me.  However, the MD5SUMS checked out, as did

I was trying to do an Update install on a reiserfs filesystem.  I can't rule out
the root cause being All My Fault, because I was warned about 3rd party packages.

I tried twice.  The installer quit both times after ~1.5 hours.  The second
time, it was immediately AFTER updating zsh.

Finally, I tar-ed up my home directory, saved it to a network drive, and did a
basic Workstation install.  Total install time was less than an hour, but 50
more packages than the update.  Go figure.

These errors in your anaconda dump:

4>hda: irq timeout: status=0xd0 { Busy }
<4>hda: ATAPI reset complete
<4>hda: command error: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
<4>hda: command error: error=0x54
<4>end_request: I/O error, dev 03:00 (hda), sector 1208172

indicate there was a hardware related issue preventing the install from working.
