Description of problem:
I originally had a problem with installing that came right after formatting, 
when it was about to install. I went and downloaded an update, put it on a disk 
as directed, and typed linux updates in the initial boot screen. It read the 
updates and proceeded to initialize the installation program. I then get this 

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 594, in?
    intf.progressWindow, rootPath)
TypeError: __init__() takes exactly 3 arguments (5 given)
install exited abnormally

The update image file was named 8.0-cdread.img
