Description of problem:
After configuring the disks, the install options, and choosing packages, the 
installer began to format.  When I looked back (less then 5 mins), it had 
crashed with an unhandled exception.  I believe it got through the format, but 
I'm not sure.  The unhandled exception window told me to file a bug report and 
to give the trace/dump I've attached below.

I had to restart the installation.  I'm not sure I got ALL the packages I 
selected before (I tried to mimic the previous install as closely as possible), 
but it didn't have any issues the second time around.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Red Hat 9.0

How reproducible:
Couldn't Reproduce

Additional info:

Trace/Dump from Anaconda attached.

You are getting lots of SCSI errors during the install - it looks like some type
of disk/hardware failure.
