If you are hitting a traceback, you have the option to save the exception to a remote server via scp, save it to a disk, or save directly to bugzilla.  If you can't do any of those, can you at least switch to tty2, grab /tmp/anaconda-tb-*, and save it to a USB device?  Without the error, it's really difficult to debug.
