User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 

Description of problem:
I attempted install via CDROM 5 times; 4 in graphical mode, 1 in text mode.  
Each time, the same error happened, although not with the same file names.  I 
did take a dump the third time this happened, and will attach the file.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run the installer.
2.Select packages, format partitions, etc.


Actual Results:  anaconda crashed with the following messages displayed, each 
time the filenames were different:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 786, in handleRenderCallback
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py", line 149, in renderCallback

  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 150, in gotoNext
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 215, in moveStep
    rc = apply(func, self.bindArgs(args))
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/packages.py", line 719, in doInstall
    problems = ts.run(0, ~rpm.RPMPROB_FILTER_DISKSPACE, cb.cb, 0)

    fn = self.method.getFilename(h, self.pkgTimer)
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/image.py", line 119, in getFilename
    f = open("/mnt/source/.discinfo")
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/mnt/source/.discinfo'

I confirmed that the .discinfo file does exist on each of the three cd-roms I 

Expected Results:  Install should continue normally to end of install

Additional info:

I tested each media three times with the tester included in the install; each 
time, the media came back PASS.

I attempted install one more time using a different CD drive; this time the 
install went smoothly.  Apparently my CD drive is to blame.
