Description of problem:
While I was installing Red Hat 9 it crashed.  It happened when I was selecting
packages.  I went with the option to select individual packages and was looking
at the flat view.  I had been selecting and deselecting various packages for
roughly 10 minutes when suddenly I was dropped to the console and told that I
could now reboot.

Next time it happens switch over to VC3 and VC4 (cntl-alt-f3 and cntl-alt-f4)
and see if any error messages or warnings are present.
