Red Hat 7.0

My first install ;) Chose Workstation.
Used fdisk to create/size my partitions.

/ /dev/hda1 (200M)
Swap /dev/hda2 (128M)
/usr /dev/hda5 (400M)
/var /dev/hda6 (400M)
/home /dev/hda7 (remaing - about 1.5 Gig)

(All paritions were Linux native, except for Swap)

Accepted install defaults. It was about to begin installing packages, and 
produced error. I saved it to a floppy. Hopefully the output will be readable.


Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py", line 20,

How reproducible: Haven't tried to reproduce it.


Additional info: I re-installed using RH's default partitions for a 
workstation. It worked. I'll try to reproduce the error using my partition 
setup some time next week.
