The log shows you are getting dma and other IDE errors from your /dev/hda (the
first IDE drive).  It appears to be a hardware problem.

I know more exactly where is the trouble but to fix it I have to change my hard-
drive. It's a Compaq which use small partition Diagnostic Compaq (type 12) as 
extension of the BIOS. when I meet the bug, it was with a 2Go hard-drive, and 
when I try with a 1.6Go Hard-drive it works correctly, so it may have something 
in the BIOS to extend HD over 1.6Go. But I'm sure this is a Anaconda bug, 
because before I use a 6.2 RedHat version and it works goood.
