Description of problem:
Installing glibc-common-2.2.93-5.

IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/mnt/source/.discinfo'

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot to psyche 8.0 Disc 1
2.go through standard setup/select packages
3.copies install image to hard drive and unhandled error occurs as soon as 
glibc install is attempted

Actual Results:  I got an unhandled error  error message and install resets 
the system.

Expected Results:  should have installed RH 8.0

Additional info:

I have reproduced this on multiple systems af nearly the same config...leads 
me to believe that the installer has a bug in it.  I am downloading a new ISO 
of disc 1 in an attempt to rectify the issue.
