Installation problems on notebook

Digital Hinote CT475

1.35 Gbyte disk
CT65540 graphics chipset
NE2000 compatible PCMCIA ethernet card
I have successfully installed and used RHL 6.0 on this machine (modulo a bug in kde
which causes the system to hard hang on the first mouse movement). Installation was
done using the bootnet/pcmcia disks and NFS.
I went to install RHL 6.1 on this machine using the same method and found that after
I specified the graphics chipset, the machine encountered an exception.
I went to the errata and updates page and found that there were new disk images
and installer updates. I made new installation disks and tried the installation again,
only to get what appears to be the same exception:
Traceback (innermost last):
File /usr/bin/anaconda.real, line 225, in ?
intf.run(todo, test= test)
File /tmp/lib/python1.5/site-packages/text.py, line 1000, in run
rc= apply (step(), step)
File /tmp/lib/python1.5/site-packages/text.py, line 534, in __call__
File /tmp/lib/python1.5/site-packages/xf86config.py, line 154, in setVidcard
This bug should be fixed in the latest version of the installer (available in
beta release) Please reopen this bug if you continue to have problems.
