Description of problem:
Custom graphic install of Red Hat 7.2 fails after entering root password. Python
traceback generated (see attached). 

I'm performing a default install of Red Hat 7.2 using install floppy for boot
and CDROM for stage 2 and beyond. I'm attempting to install to a 800Mb HD image
using bochs (http://bochs.sourceforge.net) running  on a Dell Optiplex.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Download and install the bochs emulator (bochs-1.4.1-1). Use a local copy of
boot.img as the boot floppy. create an 800Mb partition as the C drive, mount the
RedHat 7.2 CDROM in the CD drive.  Use the attached .bochsrc configuration file.
2.Start the standard graphical install using defaults. Create a 100Mb swap
partition and define the rest for the root partition using Disk Druid. Select
timezone, etc.
3. After entering the root password, anaconda dumps to a traceback (see attached)

Actual Results:  See attached traceback.  System offers to save traceback then
offers to reboot.

Expected Results:  Expecting a continuation of normal install.

Additional info:

NOTE: you need a fairly fast host system to preserve your sanity while
reproducing this ;-)
