Description of problem:
Install stops with error box installing glibc-common-2.2.5-34.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start install program
2. partition drive - format drive
3. Start installing packages 
4. Install error

Actual Results:  error box with following text 
"There was an error installing glibc-common-2.2.5-34.  This can indicate media failure, lack of disk space, and/or hardware problems.  This is a 
fatal error and your install will be aborted. Please verify your media and try your install again.   

Press the OK button to re-boot your system."         WOW just like the MAC in 1984  "System error !   OK"

Expected Results:  the product should have cpompleted the install without error

Additional info:

The machine is a Dell P 60 with 5 gig drive 128 Meg RAM, ATI Xpert 98 Video card.     I had Linux 6.1 on it before,  upgraded it to 7.3, that worked ok. 
Later I had to wipe the machine  for a diff project, now I am trying to install 7.3 from scratch.  Full disk wipe, re-partition, re-format, grub boot loader.  
First tried server install then tried gnome workstation install, same result.
