Description of problem:
Attempting to install for the first time with errors. Please refer to service

hardware. They state to report it as a bug. All the related details are in the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Various forms of this option fails.
2.anaconda errors appear after 5 or 10 minutes(depending on selected option)
with the call stack being dumped. The opt that went further was "linux

I would like an installed version of 7.2 running on this machine. If I need to
purchase new hardware; so be it. I would like to determine this problem soon.
This was not a bug, but an old isa SCSI card causing the problem.
