User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows 98)

Description of problem:
Installer crashes hours into the installation, at random points.  MAY be a bad 
CDROM, also had several bad packages, that I had to exclude from the 
installation list to get to this point.  Happened several
times, but not always at the same module.  Latest time was on the 
w3c-libwww-devel-5.3.2-5 module..

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


How reproducible:
Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up Partitions using Disk Druid
2. Select Packages
3. Begin installation.
    

Actual Results:  85% into the installation, anaconda dumps.

Expected Results:  Installation completes!

Additional info:

Still no LINUX on my box.
