Description of problem:
Install fails with Python trace-back.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Install has not succeeded for me yet on this system, HP Pavilion 6355US. I did
use this disk set to successfully install under VMWare Workstation.
Steps to Reproduce:
There is insufficient information here to guess what the problem is.
Have you mediachecked the installation media using the 'mediacheck' option?
I have not, but this is a set of offical RedHat disks I purchased, not ones I
I thought I'd attached the anaconda trace file but I don't see it up there.
I'll get it attached later today.

It's still installing, but I'd say you were pretty close when you asked if I'd
mediacheck-ed the disks. The disks are fine, but it looks like my CD-ROM drive
was bad; I "borrowed" one from another system and it's charging along great.
This is actually a second system I'm installing on now; I had thought there was
some problem with the old HP Pavilion I had - they are kind of quirky - and got
a new bare-bones system to which I (sigh) moved all of the Pavilion's drives.
If you guys can figure out a way to test the reliability of a CD drive, that
might be a nice option to add....
