anaconda dies when disk geometry is mismatched.

Description of Problem:
This is a clone athlon 750 with IBM IDE disk drive.
During gui install of "workstation", it prints a dialog box that says
your probed and BIOS disk geometries mismatch, blah blah.
"Ignore" and "Continue" are the two button choices I believe.
Hitting Ignore causes the same (exact) dialog box to reappear.
Hitting Ignore again causes the attached traceback.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Anaconda in limbo2
Created attachment 68004 [details]
dump from floppy disk, anaconda limbo2
The error log indicates there were lots of read errors from the CD.
You can test your CD following these instructions:
