I'm assuming you received a traceback during the installation because of your
message that it asked you to dump something to a floppy.  Please provide either
the exact messages you're seeing on the screen, or the contents of what you're
being asked to write to floppy.  We'll need this information to know exactly
where your installation is failing.

Anaconda dump

I thought it had attached the dump the first time.. Sorry. Seems to occur with
any settings when loading to sdb.  May try temp removal removal of sda and see
if that changes anything.

Turns out that SCSI drive 1 decided to die durring first install.  I think I
have closed the "bug" out.
