Description of problem:
new-install onto an winXP box, multiple attempts, i start with background.
several phoebe generic install attempts, both graphical and text based, all
crashed (will retry, and post appropriate errs - to this ticket).
then tried net install (bootnet.img) of 8.0. From mirrors.kernel.org, it wouldnt
get past a missing/corrupted file (Gnome/Gimp*docs I think).
Restarted same from another ftp-site, similar prob on different rpm.
(it would be more robust to skip such probs, and repair afterwards).
Re-tried phoebe, this time it offered upgrade (on incomplete 8.0 install).
graphical install, dont recall where it crapped out - hopefully u can tell from
the crash-log Im attaching.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
various install retrys.
Created attachment 89731 [details]
anaconda crashlog, saved via dialog
this crash occurred right after skipping past bootloader redo (this install was
ontop of incomplete 8.0 install, which failed (couldnt progress past) cuz file
not found on server).
the attached file has apparent garbage chars, just below <grp><id>base</id>
The disks failed media check, so this prolly reduces to enhance-req to make
installer more robust to individual checksum failures, or missing files (for
3rd paragraph above is erroneous: I inadvertently used 8.0 images for those
floppies. Trying again for Net install..
