Description of problem:
During installation anaconda fails randomly to open the package files to be
installed. A messagebox is displyed.
e.g "The file /mnt/source/RedHat/RPMS/docbook...rpm cannot be opened. This is
due to a missing file, a bad package, or a bad media. Press <return> to try
After clicking OK (or pressing return) multiple times, anaconda finaly decides
it can read the file, and the installation continues.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run installation program for Redhat Linux
2. Proceed until the packages start to install
Actual Results: A message box is displayed. The user needs to press "OK" up to
5 times before the installation program proceeds.
Expected Results: All the packages should be installed without user
Very annoying because you cannot leave the comuter during installation.

when a CD is bad.
