Description of problem:
When the installation runs it is fine up until it gets to a RPM with Jade in
the name and it usually dies there, producing a floppy disk containing the
error "Unhandled exception"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Install
2. Get to Jade RPM
3. "Unhandled Exception"
Actual Results: I was asked to enter a floppy disk to save the debug data and
then I was asked to reboot.

It appears your CD is bad - please check your CD set by booting the installer
with the command line 'linux mediacheck' and go through the tests.
I ran the 'linux mediacheck' and after it checked the whole CD it came back
It didn't report any errors at all.
By the way, I appologise if it was inappropriate of me to set the status of
this bug to ASSIGNED. I wasn't sure if after I gave you the info I needed to
somehow change the status. (It's my first time using Bugzilla.)
Anyway, I just thought if I oversteped myself I would appologise. I know you
guys are busy.
No problem :)
Did you test all the CDs? Or did your install just need one CD?
I just checked the first CD as it hasn't ever asked me for any others yet. (I
haven't got past the first. :-)
I'll check the others and get back to you.
I ran 'linux mediacheck' across all 3 disks and the all PASSed.
I still believe this is a media/CD drive related issue.
Could you try burning the CDs again, at a slower speed perhaps?
The program is dying because it cannot run a program (mkswap) from the CD.
