Description of problem:
Install completes package installation then begins post install, about half way 
through post install, it crashes.  This happens in both text and graphical 
mode.  I tried installing Gnome, KDE, development, and games then just KDE, 
development, and games, and then Gnome, development, and games and it crashed 
each time.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Begin install, booting from CD
2.Choose packages
3.Wait for postinstall to crash

Actual Results:  I recieved the message "installation exited abnormally"

Expected Results:  For post install to complete

Additional info:

I am using the Red Hat Linux 7.2 CDs found in the Red Hat 7.2 Unleashed Boot,

Crash Dump from Anaconda

This is the crash dump from the text installer, when this error occurs during
the graphical installer the error dialog box pops up giving the user the option
of dumping the error, but it all freezes so it is impossible to select the dump

You appear to have a bad CD set based on the error messages in the traceback.
