installer exits unhandled exception

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.79 [en] (Win98; U)
Description of problem:
This occurred on the 2nd attempt to install.
The first attempts to install failed because
the autoformat made the swap partition too
small (probably 2x the wimpy 32M cpu memory).
Manual format for a 256M swap partition maybe
fixed this, but the install still did not finish.
The computer was Win3.1
Pentium 166 with 32Meg memory
empty 4G hard drive (IDE)
4x CDROM (SCSI)
Matrox Millenium video
The install was floppy boot to RedHat 7.3 CD
using default answers for US english install,
This ocurred many hours after I quit watching.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Default US english install to empty harddrive.
2. Change swap partition to 256M
3. continue with default install.
The disk is busy for hours,
then unhandled exception error message.
It took about 12 hours to do this twice.
Expected Results: Plain KDE+game default install on old dog i386.

The bad blocks check found bad blocks. The crash is due to an error in the
handling of bad blocks detection.
Your drive most likely has problems.
