Description Chris Ford 2002-12-30 17:43:32 UTC

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021204

Description of problem:
I have tried to install via FTP from my FTP server on my local LAN.  I used the
same method that I have used on every release in the past.  My workstation is an
AMD Athlon 1.2 GHz on an Abit KT7A motherboard.    I copied all of disk 1 to a
FTP accessible folder and the RPMS from disk 2 and disk 3 into the RPMS folder.
 I then boot my worksation from disk 1 and run linux askmethod at the prompt.  I
am able to start the install and partition my HDD and set the locale etc.  I
then set the root password and it crashes with the following.  I have the
complete anaconda dump if it would be helpful.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 770, in ?
    intf.run(id, dispatch, configFileData)
  File "/usr/src/build/183995-i386/install//usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 446,
