Memory tests look good.  Just did an install on a fairly different 
machine (Dual Athlon AMD-760/8 based machine using LVM vs Dell Inspiron 
4150 Pentium-4M Intel 82801 no LVM) and got the same RPM corruption 
during my first yum install  on the new system.

Install method is the same - pxe boot, nfs install + multiple  http 


Does no one else see this?
