I see the same problem on sparc station 1 whith 64MB RAM. I have try the install
several time but alway hang at the same place after the 3 rpm (
I have even left it over night but is skill hung in the morning. Console
switching work. Is the installed wait for input from somewhere?

I found a workaround for that bug (which requires a second machine from which
you NFS mount the media on and then complete the install.

This is a result of a termination problem.  Please see #7494
